DRUMMING UP HOPE
Drumming Up Hope, an extension of the Healing Through Music program, explores the healing effects of community drumming. Engaging in the drumming experience allows individuals to more easily connect with others, express themselves openly and release negative emotions. Participating in a community drumming experience reduces feelings of isolation and gives an opportunity to create something that’s both personal and collaborative. Now in its second year, Drumming Up Hope has worked with groups at such venues as SAFY (Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth) and inmates at the Allen-County Correctional Facility. The drums necessary for the success of this program were generously donated by
Lima Pallet Company, Radio Hospital and Mid-American Cleaning. The LSO is sincerely grateful for such outstanding support as we continue to engage our community in unique and meaningful ways.
