Music for the Ages Gala to Benefit Musicians for World Harmony on November 16th

Ithaca, NY - People often turn to music to feel better.  Nonprofit Musicians for World Harmony uses music and music therapy principles to help build communities and alleviate suffering and is hosting a benefit for its local work.   

The third annual Music for the Ages gala on November 16th from 7-10 pm at Coltivare in downtown Ithaca will feature musician and performer Samite Mulondo.  Free live musical performances, stories of how music heals all ages, as well as sumptuous snacks and beverages, a diverse silent auction and an inspirational program,  round out this event.

Founded in Ithaca, Musicians for World Harmony (MWH), a local not-for-profit, is led by Samite Mulondo, a world-renowned recording artist who relocated to Upstate New York as a young refugee from Uganda.  Samite founded MWH after touring refugee camps and witnessing how music helped victims of trauma to “find their voices and sing again.”  

The cost of a ticket includes appetizers, drinks, and musical entertainment. A silent auction, stories, and songs from Samite and his band will add to the evening’s festivities.  Gala proceeds support the delivery of proven music and experiential therapy programs and outcomes, including:

  • Make memories more accessible for those diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease,

  • Collaborate with schools and groups that serve youth who struggle, including refugees and immigrants trying to  acclimate to their new lives and communities, and,

  • Create intergenerational projects between youth and the elderly that use music.

Tickets for Music for the Ages may be purchased through the Eventbrite page: or through the Musicians for World Harmony website,

BSI Production, a leader in event planning, sound, and lighting for events, Ithaca Beer Company, and Coltivare are this year’s sponsors of the event.
