UNMUTE is a Youth Volunteering project launched in and sponsored by the Lutheran Village at Miller's Grant (not-for-profit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) that is strongly committed to provide the best possible life for senior community, and also partner with many community and educational organizations that share our passion for service and support for older adults).
Beginning from August of 2019, student musicians from Kindergarten to 12th grade organized by UNMUTE share their love and music on every other Saturday in the local assisted living facilities in Maryland. UNMUTE strives to restore and revive the sound output of not only their musical instruments but also the voices of their audience. The group focuses on outreach programs and providing opportunities for K-12 students to serve the community with open hearts and open music. Starting from April of 2020, UNMUTE desires to continually connect to senior residents by launching weekly Virtual Concerts while combating COVID-19. Student Musician Volunteers stay at home to practice, perform, and record their performance video with the hope to continually bring smiles and music to their audience.
