Guests are invited to attend Music as the Message in-person or from the comfort of their homes via Zoom. Music as the Message is broadcast LIVE from the beautiful Broadway Presbyterian Church in New York City, a welcoming home for people of all walks of life and a vibrant supporter of the arts and artists in the Morningside Heights community.

If you join us in person, you are welcome (but not required) to wear a mask. We will continue to monitor the changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Adrienne invites you to the third season kick-off episode of Music as the Message, entitled IT TAKES A VILLAGE! at Broadway Presbyterian Church & simultaneously on Zoom.

This episode of Music as the Message (MaM) is dedicated to ALL caregivers. It Takes a Village celebrates the tireless efforts of everyone in a caregiver position, and we mean everyone… family members, healthcare workers, religious leaders, teachers….you get the picture! Taking care of others can be stressful, so please join us for a restorative, meditative time of reflection in this imaginative hybrid performance experience. MaM celebrates community, and what better way to do that than to commune through music at Broadway Presbyterian Church. Attendees are encouraged to sing and speak along, whether in the Zoom room or in the Sanctuary, with strong and joyous voices!

For this Music as the Message episode, AOP is giving 50% of all donations raised on November 20th to Broadway Community, a non-profit agency located at Broadway Presbyterian Church that provides food, shelter, health-care, and many other services for neighbors in need. Broadway Community sets an abundant table, believing that everyone deserves justice, dignity, health, and wholeness.

Hosted by Adrienne Danrich, and featuring a stellar cast of artists:
