Artistry. Integrity. Passion.

The Chicago Federation of Musicians has created a program called Music Helping All Recover Together in order to bring live, professional music back to civic life.  The program has so far 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 is to create a "soundtrack for the recovery," and the program has been a resounding success. The program is returning in May of 2021 to bring music to Cook County Health vaccination sites across the Chicago area!  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.   

Thank You!!!!!!
