Musicians without Borders provides community music projects for people dealing with trauma, fear, and isolation as a result of war and conflict. Through their programs and long-term commitment, participants from recent or on-going conflicts develop skills and talents, process grief and loss, and build bridges of reconciliation. They oversee adult and children music programs in Kosovo, the West Bank, Rwanda, Uganda, Northern Ireland, and refugees in The Netherlands.

Honoring Music and Art Legacies...
In honor of the family's music and art legacies, we annually select and donate to a deserving organization that is making a positive impact with their music and art programs. The foundation's support is also in recognition that science has shown a link between listening to and practising music on brain development, long-term cognitive skills, and emotional well-being. Additionally, music can often be a catalyst for people to connect with our share humanity.
"Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul." - Plato
