Season's Greetings!

It's that time of year again! I love the smell of the fresh trees for sale on Astor Place, and all the anticipation of the holiday season. And what would the season be without music? For me, hearing the holiday songs brings back memories of childhood: bundling up to go sledding, walking down to the lake for ice skating and hot chocolate, making the yearly trip into Manhattan to see the Saks Fifth Avenue windows and the tree at Rockefeller Center. It's another example of the power of music, and how music is intricately woven into the fabric of our lives.

We have had two exciting fund raising events this past fall. On November 16, Richard Kogan, pianist and psychiatrist, gave a lecture/recital on George Gershwin. The setting was the magnificent Steinway Hall in midtown Manhattan. Guests were treated to a fascinating program that tied in the life of Gershwin to his music. Kogan's dynamic presentation and playing brought it all alive. He, in turn, was moved seeing video excerpts of work from the Center.

On December 13, Nordoff-Robbins therapist Mikako Hirota organized a concert through her company Journey to Music. People contributed money to play at the concert, and the funds went to support the Center. Staff member David Marcus hosted the event, and Clive Robbins showed video examples of clinical work. Staff member Kaoru Robbins helped out, along with therapists Sunyoung Park, Jenny Fu, and Reika Yoshihara. All agreed the day was a resounding success. The positive energy was shared by performers and the audience alike.

We appreciate your continued support as we strive to bring music into the lives of individuals with special needs. Best wishes to you for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, and a happy and healthy new year.

Hi Jacqueline! My name is Erin, and I am an undergraduate student studying to become a music therapist. Nordoff-Robbins has been such a crucial instrument of inspiration for me, and I would like to invite you to visit my blog so that we may network further. As a future music therapist, I will always appreciate the work of Nordoff-Robbins! Thanks for all you do!
