Give Grief a Voice

Wesley United Methodist Church - Parlor, 79 Clinton Street, Concord, NH 03301

Music can help process the intense emotions that come with grief, which sometimes cannot be described in words. Join us for a four-week program for grieving adults. Participants are encouraged to share about their experiences and struggles with grief. Our music therapy intern will be facilitating group musical experiences to support you in grief and encourage connection and emotional expression. No musical experience necessary.

Registration is required. All community members are welcome to attend. This program is offered at no charge. Masks and distanced seating required.
