Artistry. Integrity. Passion.
During the late summer and fall of 2020, the Chicago Federation of Musicians initiated a program called Music Helping All Recover Together in order to bring live, professional music back to civic life. The program created 30 concerts all over the metropolitan area, employing 100 musicians in support of local first responders, food pantries, centers for the disabled, and local neighborhood gatherings. Our intention was to create a "soundtrack for the recovery," and the program has been a resounding success. Due to a change in weather and our current need to schedule performances outside, the program will be on hiatus until spring of 2021. In the meantime we are seeking donations in order to expand the reach and impact that the joy of music can bring to a weary public. Please consider donating to help fund M-HART.
