Melodies for Remedies

OUR MISSION:

The Melodies for Remedies Organization is a nonprofit organization that was created during the COVID-19 pandemic to help people like seniors and people in hospitals who are isolated, even more so due to the stay-at-home orders. The Melodies for Remedies Organization has hosted many successful online concerts, and we are looking forward to continuing more online/live performances. If you like playing instruments, singing, or dancing, please join Melodies for Remedies! All performers will receive service hours, and we are flexible with time when the club members are available and the level of commitment they have with this club. Our mission is to bring joy to those who are lonely during this difficult time.

Online Concerts

We provide online Zoom concerts once a month to senior homes, family centers, and hospitals during this time. We try to host these once a month, so the community can regularly enjoy the positivity they feel from listening to music.

Recordings

Our members at the Melodies for Remedies provide high-quality recordings for compilations that are sent out as videos on YouTube to all the places and people we are in touch with. These can be found under the "Videos" section of this website.

Live Concerts

In the near future, our concerts will go live when the situation allows us to do so. We will perform for senior homes, family centers, and hospitals.

Testimonials

I had a great experience. It was nerve wracking at first because this was my first time performing. However, the environment was great and it felt good to play for the senior homes. Hopefully I helped make their day just a bit better.

- Emmy Demorre

I really love how this club has let us perform for many different audiences! It’s greatly impacted me in a positive way and gives me great joy each time I perform.

- Anh Quang Vo

This club has brought me so much joy because of its tight-knit community. Seeing fellow music lovers on Zoom simply enjoying music brings a sense of normalcy to my life again. Performing has been amazing and has helped me improve as a musician immensely. I'm having so much fun here and it feels great to know that I'm helping others in the process!
