This year’s event will be held at Arc Park, a new park for people of all abilities to enjoy recreation, which is located at 420 E. German Street in Herkimer, NY. There is a new bandstand to accommodate musicians. Electricity and chairs can be provided.
According to Tammy Helmer-Bergen, Arc Herkimer Spirituality coordinator, the musical talent can be choirs, bands, instrumentalists, soloists, etc. Anyone can contribute music that has a spiritual message. This year’s headliner is FLAME, the band. The musicians are from Lexington (Montgomery ARC) and the group is made up of people with developmental and physical disabilities. They have traveled the world with their goal to highlight abilities not disabilities and to inspire people through their music.
Musicians interested in contributing their talent should contact Helmer-Bergen by calling: (315) 574-7850 or emailing: email@example.com by Thursday, June 15.
Arc Herkimer’s Spirituality Committee works to provide opportunities for participation for persons with disabilities, along with their families, in meaningful spiritual activities to allow everyone to come together to celebrate as a community.
