Music for Thought


We are currently planning our 2019 Music for Thought event, and hope you will check back for more information.

In 2018, attendees enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar while listening to an evening of music with The Shinolas.  The Shinolas include Hartford area musical luminaries Jim Chapdelaine (gtrs), Lorne Entress (drums), Paul Kochanski (bass), and Ed Iarusso (pedal steel). Members have recorded or performed with none other than Les Paul, Phoebe Snow, Lori McKenna, Big Al Anderson, Charlie Musselwhite, Mike Love, Susan Tedeschi, Jon Pousette Dart and other acclaimed artists. And if that weren't enough, Jim has won twelve (and counting) Emmys composing soundtracks for CPTV.

All proceeds benefit the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut. For more than 35 years, the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) has been Connecticut's resource for concussion and more severe brain injury awareness, education, resources and support. BIAC's primary objective is to support individuals with brain injuries, their families, caregivers and brain injury professionals while increasing awareness of brain injury and its prevention.

Stay tuned for what 2019 brings!
