https://bit.ly/2I2tcngThe Woodlands is very excited to announce that the 20th-anniversary Notes from the Heart Young Adult & Adult Music Camp concert will be held at the August Wilson Cultural Center in downtown Pittsburgh on Thursday, July 11, 2019.  Not only is this concert a celebration of unity and community, but also of Woodlands’ campers’ talents, abilities, and accomplishments.

The Woodlands’ mission is to enrich the lives of children and adults with disability and chronic illness by providing adapted therapeutic programs that support and strengthen the development of skills in socialization, creative expression, environmental awareness, recreation, and spirituality at its fully accessible Wexford, PA, facility. Through the Notes from the Heart program, The Woodlands strives to ensure that all participants share both the joy and the human right of self-expression. The week-long intensive program held on the Wexford, 52-acre campus, culminates in a free performance at 7:00 p.m. on the final day of the camp.

Internationally and locally known musicians, conductors, and educators return as Notes From The Heart Music Camp faculty and staff. Previous to his position as Director of Orchestral Activities at The Hartt School, Edward Cumming was Resident Conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony. Andrew Clark is Director of Choral Activities at Harvard University. Allison Fromm is the Founding Director of Joyful Noise, a New Jersey and Delaware chorus of adults with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries, which has become a national model for similar ensembles. Lilly Abreu is a vocal recording artist and teaches Voice at Carnegie Mellon. Kory Antonacci oversees the Creative and Expressive Arts Therapies program at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in addition to running the year-round Music Ensemble club at The Woodlands.

With this concert, the Notes from the Heart faculty and performers create and embody an aspirational vision where equity is commonplace, a community where all feel valued and respected, in addition to a high-quality artistic experience.  Please join us for this spectacular evening and memorable performance that will engage your mind and capture your heart.
