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 at   Thank you!


Continuing in our growth and outreach in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Drumming Up Relief TM  Program, now part of our new entity, ONE HEARTBEAT, was launched in August 2005.  Since then we have partnered with community organizations to offer special events to benefit worthy organizations dedicated to serving those in need in our community.  Thank you for your support!  

Please contact us, if you would like to be considered as a recipient of this program, or would like to sponsor and event on behalf of a worthy organization.
