On the front page of The Oregonian today there is a picture of two clients at their music therapy group at Bethesda Lutheran Communities in NW Portland. "A dozen men and women in the (music therapy) circle wouldn't even make eye contact a year ago. But on Friday some sang, others clapped or shook tambourines. Many smiled. It's all a part of the music therapy class offered at Bethesda . . . that serves people with developmental disabilities." Let's hope that somehow music therapy is spared in these tough economic times.
