Tedeschi Trucks Band to Support Music Therapy Foundation
Tedeschi Trucks Band have announced that they will donate $1 from every ticket sold for their September 21 show at New York City’s Beacon Theatre to Music Never Stops: The Tyler Seaman Foundation, a charitable organization that provides funding for music therapy programs. The money will go toward creating a new space called Tyler’s Room at Beth Israel Medical Center’s Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine, and toward helping Beth Israel hire new music therapists, buy recording equipment and instruments and expand their services.
The foundation was created in honor of music lover Tyler Seaman, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 18. Seaman was diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer when he was 14, and music helped him through his treatment, as well as his terminal diagnosis.
Music Never Stops needs funding in order to make Tyler’s Room a reality and to continue supporting music therapy programs. Those who would like to donate to the organization can do so here.
