Supporting Sonoma County’s volunteer firefighters from recruitment to retirement.

As part of our year-long 20th Anniversary celebration, Gerry Dignan, known as "Uncle Gerry" on our Music Together recordings, is returning to perform a Benefit Concert on Zoom to help us raise money for the Volunteer Fire Foundation.

Here in Sonoma County, we all know how valuable our First Responders are, but did you know that over half of the fire departments in Sonoma County are entirely or mostly volunteer?

Let's rally our Music Together community to sing and dance while raising money to help these helpers!*

...with us!

Celebrate

Beloved Music Together recording artist "Uncle Gerry" Dignan

Gerry, who hails from Chicago, has performed four in-person concerts in our community since 2014, and one virtual concert for us last fall. These events are a lot of family fun! Whether you have taken a Music Together class or not, enjoy this concert treat with your kids, and let Gerry lead us in song and movement for a great cause!

Not only does Gerry sing for Music Together, but he also performs internationally, has recorded with the late David Darling, (Grammy-nominated cellist) and has contributed to the work of Music for People (David Darling, co-founder), an organization dedicated to self-expression through improvisational music. He was also a member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus and performed at the Concerthalle in Berlin, Germany, as well as in New York at Carnegie Hall. He has worked extensively at seminars, conferences and retreats, providing musical experiences internationally in song and dance, facilitating personal growth and strengthening community life.

Donations will be made as a "registration" for the event. You need only to list one child name; it is really a 'per family' fee. If you list a second child, you will be asked for a second donation, so just list one, and then choose your preferred donation from the drop-down menu at checkout. 

*About our fund-raiser:

   All proceeds from our Uncle Gerry concert will be donated to the Volunteer Fire Foundation in the name of "Santa Rosa Area Music Together Families."

   Fires in Sonoma County have grown more numerous in the past few years, and with the dry winter we had, it's not a question of "if" fire will strike, but "when." It's hard to choose where to put our help; all of our first responders are deserving of aid.

We at SRAMT are choosing the Volunteer Fire Foundation because volunteer fire departments are critically underfunded, and volunteer firefighters offer profound staffing assistance when their paid peers need it the most. Here in Sonoma County, we can't get along without them.
