Recognized as the No. 2 educational clinic in the nation, the Arizona State University Music Therapy Clinic in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Music changes lives one note at a time.

The clinic will hold its inaugural Music Therapy Clinic Showcase and Fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 5 at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale.

The showcase and fundraiser will feature an evening of memorable performances by current and former Music Therapy Clinic students and clients, and a recognition of community partners and student leaders. Ticket purchases will directly support the services provided through the clinic to promote learning, health and positive change by funding community ASU music therapy programs.

“This signature annual event provides an opportunity to bring the community together once a year to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and community members,” said Frank Thompson, faculty associate in the music therapy program.

The nationally renowned music therapy program in the ASU School of Music brings over 40 years of music and academic excellence into today’s clinical and technological health-care environment. The program is socially embedded in the community and serves a variety of clients — from children with disabilities and Alzheimer's patients to kids living in group homes and veterans — seeking optimal quality of life through therapeutic music experiences.

Tickets can be purchased in person at the Kerr Cultural Center for $25; online at Ticketmaster (additional fees apply); or by calling Kerr at 480-596-2660 (additional $1.50 per ticket fee). Students with an ASU ID may purchase one ticket per ID for $15.
