“Blissful, a wonderful ending to a long day.
God Bless. ”

- Angel-Shelter Client

"Music feeds our soul and I'd wish that there would be many more places like Music Kitchen where musicians can offer their art to people in need of comfort and encouragement and, in return, get a unique feeling of what it means to share the sensation of music.  The intense interaction of giving and receiving has been a very special experience for me and has moved me deeply."

-Albrecht Mayer, Principal Oboist of the Berlin Philharmonic
