Creating human connections through the power of music was the driving force of Chad Briner's life. Although Chad left us far too soon, you can can honor his life and work by contributing to the Chad Briner Memorial Music fund. Your tributes will help equally fund two outstanding music programs:

1. The Firehouse. This venue in North Manchester, Indiana, empowers young, independent musicians to cultivate their talents and connect with diverse audiences. Firehouse performances are free for all ages.

2. The Manchester Junior Senior High School Band. Chad believed deeply in music education, which he felt taught students invaluable lessons in life, leadership and self-expression.

Chad was the first friend I made when I first moved to the Manchester area. I will never forget his extension of friendship. Moving to a new area is never easy, especially as a kid. Chad let me know, it’s ok, you’ve got a friend! I will never forget that. This music fund is an exceptional way to have Chad’s kind memory live on. His incredible talent and love for music can now be honored and shared. I extend my deepest sympathies to his loving family and to all who had the pleasure of calling Chad a friend. Chad may you Rest in Peace. You will be missed!

"On the day I die, don’t say he’s gone. Death has nothing to do with going away. The sun sets, and the moon sets but they’re not gone. Death is a coming together. The human seed goes down into the ground like a bucket, and comes up with some unimagined beauty. Your mouth closes here, and immediately opens with a shout of joy there." -Rumi Dear Briner family - I am so sorry to hear of Chad's passing. I cannot fathom the expressions of grief that each of you must be feeling right now. I'm holding all of you in the light with love. -Hilary
