Today, four of us went to perform for the people at Rogerson House in Boston. Two violins, a trumpet and a piano made for an interesting combination of instruments, but we managed to put together some fun fiddle tunes, ragtimes (awesomely arranged for two violins), and then some light jazz and Pop tunes – the Beatles and the likes.
For all four of us, music is our way of making a living, however, today we all came together with another purpose…to spread some love and joy to these gentle, kind, and friendly people in need of some extra ‘light’ in their lives. There is no greater joy than putting oneself aside, our egos and pride, and humbling ourselves in order to touch the lives of others. It makes me think of this great quote by John Wooden:
“You haven’t lived a perfect day until you have done something for someone who can’t repay you. That’s real generosity.”
We have many more events, concerts, and volunteer opportunities planned for during the Summer. Come join us! You will find that while helping to change the lives of others you yourself will be changed. (it is also a ton of fun with a great group of people!)
Looking forward to seeing you all soon
Much love ~
