The Pre-Conference Institute, "Community Music Therapy," will feature Mendelt Hoekstra, Canadian music therapist and director of the "Momentum Choir," and Kimberly Mancino, music therapist at Lutheran Social Services Jamestown, NY. The "Momentum Choir" was established in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada in 2007, through the vision of Executive and Artistic Director, Mendelt D. Hoekstra, with the assistance of Bethesda Community Services and a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Momentum’s mission is to provide an authentic musical experience in which the gifts of unique artists can be professionally nurtured, and through which the artists can be given the opportunity to belong, believe and inspire.
Kimberly Mancino has developed award winning inter-generational and other community music therapy programs at Lutheran Social Services. The Intergenerational Music Day Camp received the 2006 Innovation of the Year Award from the New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (NYAHSA). Our speakers will be sharing their expertise regarding how to organize and administer their very successful programs! Our conference opening will feature a performance by the "Momentum Choir."
