Over the course of more than six decades, we have inspired and changed more than 50,000 lives.

And we're just getting started.

Albert Kerelis Testimonial 1600x1200

Nowhere else have I had access to a diverse and multicultural family. Nowhere else have I breathed in unison with the brothers, sisters, family around me and tried to feel their joy, their pain, and their lives as they are carried to my ears by the most inspiring and empowering music.
