New Jersey Social Workers Conference Evening Program Borgato Hotel, Atlantic City, NJ
A special presentation by Lynn Miller and Lynn Saltiel with the Music for People Improv Orchestra
Music for People (MFP) was founded in 1988 by David Darling and Bonnie Insull as a nonprofit organization that promotes self-expression through music improvisation and the creative arts. MFP was founded on the belief that music is a natural creative expression available to everyone. MFP acts as a catalyst in gathering people together to play and sing by creating a safe environment in which they can explore musical expression. All styles of music are celebrated and players of all levels of experience and all walks of life are welcomed. “It is not music for the sake of performance, it is music for the sake of human development and potential and growth.”
(Mary Knysh, MLP Chairperson).
Music for People Improv Orchestra is an improvisational orchestra which includes vocalists, storyteller and an array of traditional world instruments. The members create “music in the moment” with audience participation included. It is the use of music as a medium for self-expression, for communication, for a better understanding of how to be with others in sound and in relationship, which in turn creates stronger communities.
