ACM@UCO BENEFIT CONCERT FOR MMMF
AT OKC'S BLUE DOOR GREAT SUCCESS
 
The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) produced a showcase of local performing artists at the legendary Blue Door to raise awareness and funds for music therapy and education - and they packed the house!  We are so incredibly grateful for their efforts to support the work of the Music Moves Mountains Foundation in Oklahoma!  Special guests included music therapist Suzy Heppel of Integris Jim Thorpe Rehab and her patient Jake McGehee, who played some beautiful tunes despite losing an arm the previous year.  It was an awesome testimony to the power of music!
 
Thank you to the Oklahoma Gazette for the thoughtful article on MMMF spreading awareness and promoting the benefit concert!   Read it here:
