Music For Veterans
Peace Through Music
Music for Veterans provides the opportunity for social interactions with fellow Veterans who may be facing the same issues of reintegrating into civilian life... all through the fun activity of playing a musical instrument!

If you don't have an instrument, Music For Veterans will provide one. The instrument is on loan, but if you participate in the group continuously for a year, the instrument becomes yours. (We are looking for sponsors to offer this to everyone, but currently this is for local members only).
If you are interested in playing music at any of our scheduled community events, you are welcomed to join us!
Check out our upcoming and past performances on our Facebook page.
Our services are available at no cost to Veterans, so we depend on contributions from people like you who see the value of this program that helps bring our Veterans together in a peaceful and creative atmosphere of Music and Camaraderie!
