What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? From a young age, I have always been drawn to music. My first concert was BB King when I was in the 5th grade and I have been hooked ever since. A song can bring you up, or bring you down. It can be fun escapism or allow you to get lost in the story or message. It is a unifier and a healer. Music can connect people and places. As we often witness, music is medicine.

I volunteer with MOC because it ties a sense of purpose (volunteering) with a passion of (music). I have met amazing artists who are happy to share their talents, and have even become friend with some outside of the MOC circle. MOC is a great organization and I am proud to be involved.
