A while after the isolation restrictions began we decided to bring forward an in-person program by several months, and put part of it online.

Each Weekend Prelude is designed to start your weekends with a musical purpose, exploring topics that directly impact your participation in live music activities as performers, listeners and volunteers.

Got a topic you’d like to know more about? Request it here.

Watch every episode live on Saturdays at 9am Eastern!

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day

October 9 is world mental health day.

Participating in live music as performers AND listeners is known to help prevent escalation of many mental health issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness, and even suicide.

What are you going to do today to participate?

Here are some ideas:

  • Buy concert tickets,
  • Play an instrument,
  • Sing a song on your own,
  • Sing in a group!
  • Or even host your own Front Lawn Mini Concert!

Congratulations, and Thank You!

Giving back to the community is an important part of doing business in the community. With so much emphasis on physical health right now and very little attention being given to our emotional well-being, Ed Gruber found the perfect opportunity for a win-win-win with the Dunedin Music Society.

Joining the Dunedin Music Society Maestro’s Circle and supporting the DMS mission as a Music Maker sponsor was an easy choice for Ed Gruber. With his teenage son Matthew exploring music, and the opportunity to support Maestro Stephen P. Brown’s passion to bring live music to the community at large, he was sold after his first DMS concert. “It is rare to find that kind of enthusiasm, dedication and joy being experienced by an audience. I was amazed at the talent, the performers and the fans. It was truly special,” Ed said.

Ed sees his partnership with the DMS as an opportunity to give back to the community. A certified financial planner with Edward Jones, he has helped people realize their dreams for 27 years and is delighted to play a part in making the DMS’ own dreams come true. His sponsorship provides a win-win-win for his business, the DMS, and ultimately the thousands of followers, fans and performers who love live music.

Ed has made a career of helping people with personalized service, knowledge and caring. His gift to the DMS is priceless and appreciated. We welcome Ed Gruber and Edward Jones as our first Maestro’s Circle Music Maker, and to the DMS family. In the words of Maestro Stephen P Brown, “Bravo, and thank you!”
