Live music is essential to the heart. It directly contributes to our mental, behavioral and emotional health and well-being. Our local communities connect with each other through live, in-person music; and no matter how we earn a living or seek respite, performing, learning, and listening to live music improves our skills, communication, processing power, alertness, memory, physical coordination, and so much more. In short, the quality of cultural life is so much better.
We have an underlying belief that live music is the sharing of a momentary and intense natural expression of emotion, enhanced by the uniqueness of all involved, that enriches lives and brings people together. Audiences of local residents, snowbirds and tourists love the live music offered by DMS, and some even have settled in the area specifically for the ability to participate in DMS activities.
