You’ve had a long day at work or school. You come home, sit down on the couch, and play some music with friends.
The simple act of tuning up and tuning out has been a practice to benefit mental well-being and social inclusion for thousands of years. And in today’s day and age, it is all the more important.
In comes Vivian Sollows, who is, as her name suggests, Vivacious. Her ability to inspire through music has her attempting such feats as setting the world record for largest organized singalong of Jingle Bells. Her initiative is Adaptive Music Expressions, which provides seniors with developmental delays the opportunity to partake in bi-weekly music circles.
With the $1000 JustChange grant, Vivian will be able to incorporate and buy new equipment for the classes. We are thrilled to have given her this boost and hope that this start will be the prelude to a beautiful harmony among the Ottawa community, no matter the disability, age, income or musical ability.
Please join me in congratulating Vivian Sollows
