Alberta Abbey to Host NW Musicians Fundraiser to Aid Fly Me To The Moon Organization
On Sunday, May 19, four of Portland’s most beloved musical acts will take the stage to raise money for Fly Me To The Moon, a new nonprofit organization that delivers live music performances to seniors in assisted living, retirement communities, and memory care facilities.
Organization founder and producer, Dean Mueller, hopes to raise funds and create awareness of the program through this concert. To showcase the music, Mueller selected the newly renovated Alberta Abbey, a community arts center in NE Portland, to host the show. The lineup includes the Duffy Bishop Band, 3 Leg Torso, Aaron Meyer, and Julie Amici.
Fly Me To The Moon was formed in partnership with the Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) in 2018. “The scientific evidence supports what we have always suspected,” Mueller said, “that music can stimulate feelings of joy and harmony in seniors.”
Alberta Abbey, 126 NE Alberta Street. Sunday, May 19, 6:30 pm. Tickets available at Squareup.com $25.00 general admission, $35.00 VIP in first five rows.
