We have the privilege of working with youth, families, and care providers at the Herbert Irving Child and Adolescent Oncology Center at Columbia University; what an inspiration they are, and what a joy for us to be able to learn from and create with them. As one of our teaching artists for this program, Eleanor Dubinsky, so eloquently put it, the “difference between you and I” becomes very minuscule in this grounding, real space where love truly abounds, and music truly provides a space for healing.
The fun song below, co-written by teaching artist Mary Lee Kortes and Madison (both pictured) is but one example of the creations and connections made in this special space.
