Staller Center for the Arts and Jack Licitra team up again to offer an uplifting and healing concert, virtually. Let the Music Heal Your Soul, will be live on Monday, February 15 at 3 pm. The concert is free and registration is required. To register, visit stallercenter.com/outreach.
Licitra and friends are ready to rock. Let the Music Heal Your Soul offers the usual funny songs and crazy antics while touching on some serious issues of loneliness for kids during the pandemic. He believes music is critical to healing and happiness. “Music can heal your soul,” says Licitra, “talking about all of the feelings, and singing about them, using yourself as the instrument, using hand movements and symbols, it can help to heal your soul … it all helps kids get those feelings out in the open, and it shows them that they’re not alone.”
The Staller Center and Jack Licitra have paired up in the past to offer concerts through the Staller Center’s Outreach and Education Program at local nonprofits, libraries and at the Staller Center itself. “There are a lot of other kids that feel disconnected from their friends … that’s why we wanted to offer this concert as a resource, to try to help them feel more connected to other kids that are feeling more alone than usual,” says Paul Newland, outreach director for Staller Center.
Let the Music Heal Your Soul uses music in a healing way by taking familiar melodies, rhythms and chord progressions to create a shared community consciousness. The concert features Jack Licitra, Katie Monhan, Camryn Quinlan and Brian Licitra.
