Non-profit organization HOPE, Inc. is hoping to introduce a new program incorporating music therapy into rehabilitation treatment for youth (ages 14 to 22) with behavioral health and substance abuse issues. On Saturday March 14 at 6:30 p.m. they're putting on a concert at Armory Park Center, 220 S. Fifth Ave., featuring local musicians Amy Mendoza, Celeste Amadee, Royal Agaves, and Doctors of Modern Medicine to raise funds for the budding Anchor Music Project. HOPE, Inc. is a behavioral health service provider that offers a team approach to recovery. According to the group, there is extensive clinical evidence supporting music as a positive force for behavioral and physical well-being. The proposed program will "bring youth together in a safe space to learn, practice and teach music with peer and professional behavioral health support." AMP up your weekend and help out a good cause. Tickets are $22 for adults, $25 at door; $10 for students and children, $12 at door. Check out the event's Facebook page for more info.
