The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Violist Molly Carr, of Project Music Heals Us, made her New York solo debut at Lincoln Center. However, it was not until she was moved from New York City to Guilford to live with her grandparents after injuring her left hand that she found her passion: bringing the healing power of music to those who are in most need.
In addition to being on the faculty of Juilliard School of Music and touring, Carr now comes back to the Connecticut shoreline five times a year to play at local churches with a handful of accomplished artists and friend. All the proceeds directly subsidize additional healing concerts played in local nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, homeless shelters, and prisons. Her goal is to use her gift to reach those who are hurting, alone and unreached for extended periods of time. Their next concert will be held on Friday, Nov. 17 at the First Congregational Church, 122 Broad Street, Guilford from 7 to 9 p.m. It will not be chamber music as usual but will have the edgier sound of a chamber rock band, consisting of three cellos and an acoustic drum set. The musicians will play classic tunes with a rock sensibility, plus the theme song from Game of Thrones.
Carr and the other musicians will stay for an after-concert reception featuring healthy refreshments, including gluten-free desserts. A $20 donation will be requested at the door to help support the projects undertaken by Project Music Heals Us that serve the elderly, disabled, incarcerated, and homeless populations. When Carr was here in September, her group performed two full day interactive concerts for more than 100 inmates in Danbury Federal and Radgowski Correctional Institutions in Danbury and Uncasville. The group also played at St. George Church, where the proceeds went to Hurricane Harvey victims, and returned to the Hearth Retirement Community in Madison for a Sunday afternoon performance.
