Blumenstein was inspired to create Jurys Out while doing an internship with a local hospice, where she noticed how music brought a positive outlook to patients. Jurys Out gives music students the opportunity to practice their stage presence and perfect their jury pieces, and it is a chance for them to also give back to the community.
