Thank you for visiting GCSB Arts, Education and Wellness' website. As we switch over to a new look, you may find certain parts of the website that are not working properly yet. We are working as quickly as possibly to get our website up and running smoothly. Thank you for your patience.

A SPECIAL MISSION TO HELP OTHERS:

Our full orchestra and smaller band are both parts of GCSB Arts, Education and Wellness, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated not just to celebrating and preserving the music we so love, but to supporting disabilities awareness through musical education programs to enhance the lives of children and adults with special needs. GCSB founders, Jill and Joy Procida both carry a diagnosis of limb girdle muscular dystrophy and can relate first-hand to the freedom one can feel through music.

To fulfill our mission, we use Glass City Swing Band, an 18-piece swing band, as well as our smaller group, Glass Half Full. You can read more about GCSB Arts, Education and Wellness and it's driving force on our About Us page.

Golden Memories

Golden Memories: Vitalizing Senior Communities Through Music was developed to support the health and wellness of the senior community through music. We believe that arts therapies have value to the seniors who are no longer able to get out and experience what they once did because of illness or limitations.

Through SCAT, SCAT Minor and Golden Memories, we hope to give each participant a sense of self-worth and accomplishment which will help improve their overall health and wellness. All these programs are free of charge to all participants.
