On Friday, April 3, the nonprofit Sounds of Saving will host its second Feedback Session. Dubbed COVID 19: Mental Health + Music, it’ll take place at 6pm EST via YouTube

Sounds of Saving aims to fuel hope both by “celebrating the power of human connection to music” and by directing people towards the resources they need. It was founded by Nick Greto and Charlie Gross. All proceeds from SoS Feedback Sessions will support the nonprofit’s creation of an online platform that bring “stories, support and resources” to people in need.

The feedback event will feature solo performances by musicians Kate Davis, Raffaella and Oxymorrons. Robert Galligan, a psychologist based in Brooklyn, will moderate the session and talk about creativity as a “healing strategy” and discuss how to manage anxiety and emotions during our time of crisis and isolation. 

All proceeds will benefit Sounds of Saving and charities that will support musicians currently unable to tour as well as healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis.

Sounds of Saving recently announced a partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Together, the two organizations will work with musicians this year to produce and release three videos that reveal “how a song found them at the right time.”
