The Music Circle empowers children, teens, and young adults of all abilities by granting them a voice through the universal language of music. The program also instills our composers with a sense of pride and accomplishment in the pieces of music that we collaboratively create.
The Music Circle was created in 2019 as a division of the Friendship Circle of Greater Hartford. Participants are recorded playing their instruments of choice. These recordings are then refined into original musical scores with the guidance of a teen composer and a music therapist. To date, the Music Circle has produced 16 original compositions that were released in an album during the spring of 2020.
