Head out to hear The Main Attractions perform rock music and learn more about Community Mainstreaming at Landmark on Main Street on Sunday, March 24 at 2 p.m.
Community Mainstreaming is a Long Island-based nonprofit committed to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities lead fulfilling and productive lives.
The band, The Main Attractions, was formed last spring when Community Mainstreaming began a music program for people in their day habilitation program. They meet twice a week at a music studio in East Meadow, where they practice with professional musician Bobby Miller and music therapist and vocal coach Twyla Summersell.
Participants achieve their individual goals — whether it’s asserting oneself, seeing a task to completion, or increasing focus and concentration — through the modality of music. The band members and instructors discuss and decide together what songs they are going to learn.
