Here at The Musical Autist, we believe Neurodiversity is something to be celebrated and respected!
We advocate for EQUAL RIGHTS TO THE FINE ARTS. We are a nonprofit organization developing Sensory Friendly Concerts and other community events for musical autists through Community Music Therapy, for the purpose of cultivating a vibrant autistic culture and to advance the Autism Rights Movement.
In 2015, we’ve added some phenomenal people to our Board of Directors. One of whom is Jordon Cochran, who is not only the dad of an awesome kiddo on the spectrum, an active-duty Air Force officer, and willing to organize a fundraisers for The Musical Autist, but he is RUNNING A MARATHON to show his support for the work we are doing! We’ll post updates on our YouCaring page, so you can follow him running 26.2 in the Baltimore Running Festival on Oct.17th.
You might remember from this time last year, C. J. ran the Baltimore Marathon and was able to raise $2436 for The Musical Autist. Let’s pledge our support, rally our cheerleaders, and continue to see what The Musical Autist organization can do!
Lots of exciting things happening around here lately. C.J.’s article on Sensory Friendly Concerts was published a couple weeks ago in the Arts & Culture section of Huffington Post. And the following weekend after Jordon’s marathon will be our 19th Sensory Friendly Concert (in Maryland alone!) and we have the amazingly talented Paula Durbin-Westby performing. Hope to see you there!
