Established in 1989, Friends of Music Society is a non-profit organization that uses music as the basis for our partnership programs which offer rehabilitation, socialization, and creative employment strategies for people with a mental illness.

Through our performing ensembles, programs and music lessons, we provide an accessible, safe, supportive and fun environment where musicians recovering from mental illness rehearse and perform in partnership with other musicians from the community.

Our goal is to focus on people’s talents, thereby promoting a sense of purpose, confidence and self-esteem.

We offer day and evening programming as well as organized public concerts and special events.
