Glad you asked…listen here to experience Connected! for yourself.
Yes, since the last blog here, I’ve been busy:
- Guitars for Vets has grown from one location at Veterans Village of San Diego to three locations with a fourth on the way, with 70+ graduates and approximately 50 active students — I’m honored to facilitate this amazing Milwaukee-based non-profit here in San Diego;
- San Diego Veterans Coalition continues to inspire partnerships in the region, now with more than 90 government agencies, NGOs, for-profit corporations, associations and dedicated individuals combining forces to better serve Veterans — I serve as SDVC Treasurer;
- The San Diego Symphony military outreach program recently provided more than 500 tickets to a summer pops event featuring one of the best new pianists of this Century, Russian-American virtuoso Lola Astanova — it’s my pleasure to help connect Service members who want to attend such events with the generosity of the San Diego Symphony;
- Speaking to Rotary Clubs on the topic of functional music — “music care” as I call it — has taken me all over San Diego County over the last year…check out one great recommendation here.
