Our new project: SQRRL!...
You've enjoyed our lively show at community centers, libraries and schools. This year, we have an additional focus: sharing hope, joy, and the spirit of imagination through music for children isolated by illnesses and disabilities; and bringing public awareness to those kids in need.
SQRRL! Across America is the dream and vision of Doug Segree for his acclaimed Mid Atlantic childrens' music group, SQRRL!. A lifetime career musician, father of 3, and high energy creative cat, it's become Doug's consuming passion to expand his work to bring joy through music to kids challenged by illness.
Our fundraising campaign for
begins June 15th.
With the increased isolation resulting from COVID-19, it's even more important to reach out to kids now. We're doing this by going room to room virtually, streaming our visits through tablets brought to the kids by hospital staff.
In collaboration with Hope For Henry, we'll be doing our second visit to Sinai Hospital in Baltimore on Thursday, June 4th.
With your help, we can do more. Our goal is to bring these virtual visits to children across the U.S. through the rest of 2020 and beyond.
