Serving The Community-At-Large

Rhythm-based programs for recreation and wellness enhancement via ONE HEARTBEAT RHYTHM CIRCLES have allowed her to continue this objective.

2020 Recipient:  NM - Albuquerque Community Health RHYTHMS Series supporting Alzheimer's/Dementia Caregivers/Families
When you bear witness to the journey of memory loss and the impact it has on loved ones, you can't help but be deeply moved.  Unfortunately, my family has suffered yet another loss of a loved one to this heart-breaking disease.  In tribute to my Aunt Graciela Galvez, my Mother-In-Law, Janace Vivian, and others in our community and afar who have been touched by this devastating illness, a 4-session HealthRHYTHMS series will be offered to kick-off our 2020 Drumming Up Relief Outreach activities.  Many years ago, I was able to share the healing power of drumming at a local Alzheimer's Association Conference.  I look forward to working with the local chapter to bring this outreach program to the community in early 2020.  If you are local and wish to be considered for participation, email: to request more info.  Meanwhile, be sure to consider donating to this worthy organization which provides invaluable resources and support to family, loved ones and caregivers serving those affected.

Calling All Drum Angels...

 RHYTHM CIRCLES is grateful for the participation and generosity of individuals who have supported our programs since 1993.  We consider you all our partners in our outreach opportunities.  Your event fees and additional contributions allow us to give to the community by acquiring or making instruments and having them available for the attendees to borrow.  This has made our activities accessible to those who do not own drums/hand percussion and/or cannot afford the purchase of a personal instrument.  In addition, with your financial support we are able to offer our time and energy in partnership with community organizations to provide programs for willing participants whose limited budgets typically exclude for this activity and the necessary instruments to implement one for their clients.  If you are interested in becoming a Drum Angel, please contact Giselle Felicia Vivian, BM CHT  via email   Thank you!
