Sounds of Hope Project is a music and community outreach program. Its goal is to bring comfort and support through recorded music to those in need of spiritual and/or physical healing by utilizing the donated time and talents of local musicians.
The concept for Sounds of Hope Project was born in 2002 as a therapeutic outlet for musician Mary Lou Lydecker, who was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease and virtually housebound. Her first recording, Keys to Peace, was so successful that a 2nd CD, Sounds of Hope, added a flute player and vocalists. Since then, additional performers have contributed their talents to subsequent CDs.
In order to keep costs at a minimum and to be able to provide music to those in need, the SOHP became established as a non-profit organization in May, 2004.
The music on the Sounds of Hope Project CDs encompasses many styles such as classical, folk, patriotic, seasonal, and contemporary Christian music. All of the performers for the recordings donate their time and talents for Sounds of Hope Project’s mission. SOHP also gives local musicians the opportunity to perform and record their favorite classical or inspirational music.
CD Distribution — “Hope” to Get and “Hope” to Give
To share our belief in the power of music to bring the gift of hope to others, Sounds of Hope Project provides its CDs for a donation of $10. Your $10.00 donation enables Sounds of Hope Project to produce two CDs. Please take one with you now as our ‘thank you’ for your donation. To fulfill our mission, the second CD will be given to a hospice, nursing home, hospital, shut-in or person in need.
Each gift will provide music to comfort, relax, and soothe people in need of spiritual and/or physical healing. Since its launch, Sounds of Hope Project has created 11 CDs and has distributed over 1000 CDs to shut-ins, those under hospice care, the hospitalized, those in nursing homes, those who are grieving, and others in need.
We have no affiliations to any other non-profit, political, religious, etc. organization. Thank you for helping the people we serve.
