Project: Music Heals Us
We’re partnering with Project: Music Heals Us to deliver twice weekly digital bedside concerts performed by BDDS musicians for patients at Oakwood Village Assisted Living, Agrace Hospice, and now SSM St. Mary’s Hospital. Learn more by visiting pmhu.org.
VARIOUS TIMES THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER
Ever want some alone time with Stephanie, Jeffrey, or one of our fabulous BDDS musicians? Well, now is your chance. Grab a cup of tea or glass of wine and sit down for a thirty minute Zoom or FaceTime with one of them. During your time, they’ll play for you and invite you to share your thoughts about the music. Pick a musician (button below), and then select a date and a time. This is offered to you for a pay-what-you-wish donation.
May 29 – 31 and June 18 – 20
BDDS presents 13 outdoor Bandwagon pop-up concerts, an eclectic mix of short, energetic, and engaging music. We’re bringing them free of charge to audiences in neighborhoods all over Madison: Penn Park, Orton Park, Warner Park, the Village Mall on Park, the Capitol Square, and on The Green outside of the Apple Store. Socially distanced, exciting, and family friendly.
We’ll play energetic and engaging music by Black composers Jessie Montgomery, Margaret Bonds, and Robert Owens; Latin composers Astor Piazzolla, Miguel del Aguila, and Alberto Ginastera; and favorites by Mozart, George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and more.
