Sunday, 1/26/14, Kathy Moser and her merry music makers came to The Meadows! Kathy has been working with recovering communities for the past several years bringing “Music for Recovery” to enhance patients treatment experiences by exploring creativity in music.

Kathy and Natalia worked with the Dawn patients in two songwriting workshops where they created two original songs. It was a fun, interactive workshop, 2 hours with the young adult female patients and 2 hours with the young adult male patients. The groups wrote and recorded original songs. The participants help run equipment, direct the session, perform and record the songs. After the songwriting workshops at Dawn, the musicians moved to the upper campus and performed an interactive recovery oriented concert with The Meadows and Dawn patients. Patient feedback was very positive and they were grateful for the experience and the generosity of the performers.
