Music for healing

Bringing love, hope, strength and joy to children who need it most, with music written and performed just for them! 

The shared experience of a Chase the Music gift is so much more than we could have imagined. 

Parents, musicians, song-writers, friends, audiences and others are all touched deeply by these gifts.

Pay it forward

The stories of the children continue to amaze us. They aren’t fragile, isolated, nor feeling sorry for themselves. These kids, with whatever horrific thing they are battling, are out there – living life to the fullest. They want their music to help others. A Chase the Music gift lives on forever.

How does it work?

Or... Putting together the puzzle.

A Chase the Music gift is a lot like putting together a puzzle. There are number of pieces necessary for a production. The gift can start with ANY of the pieces. Once started the Chase the Music orchestrator brings the remaining pieces together.
The tighter the fit, the better the performance. The music created & performed is just for that child. We build a relationship between the music creators and the child to make the music truly meaningful.
The venue can be anything from the child’s bedside at the hospital, their home, their school, outdoors, an auditorium, wherever is right.
An appropriate audience is built, filling the venue with family, and friends.
Love and magic is added to ensure a truly memorable experience. Simple things like programs, flowers for the mom and grandma, bringing the child on stage with a baton so that they can conduct, pizza with the band, etc. A little something to take the performance ‘over the top’.
Our WHY!
"To give children
battling critical conditions
