Melodic Connections Flood Relief

Melodic Connections is Cincinnati’s only nonprofit music therapy organization.  We serve nearly 500 individuals with developmental disabilities, ages 5 to 85. Our programs and concerts inspire and encourage audiences to recognize the value of exceptional persons and their contributions to the arts.

We suffered devasting losses in our studio due to flooding. Instruments, sound equipment, and furniture were submerged, tossed about and deposited hapazardly throughout our space. Four feet of water poured through doors and windows, ruining what was once a home to many. Our beloved studio, a space of joyful music making, is now unsafe, desolute, and destroyed.

In order for  Melodic Connections to continue services, we need your help. GoFundMe proceeds will go directly to replenishing ruined supplies: guitars, keyboards, drums, microphones, and speakers. With multiple concerts already booked for fall, and a vast majority of our musicians utilizing instruments from our studio, we need your assistance to move forward.

Although we've been devasted by this loss, our students can perservere through your generous support. Any monetary or instrument donations will directly help our individuals to engage with the community.  Together, we can empower musicians of all abilities, and provide every voice an opportunity to be heard.

Instrument donations can be dropped off at any Willis Music location  or sent to:
407 Vine St. 
Suite 112
Cincinnati, OH 45202
