In celebration of their 60th anniversary United Counseling Service of Bennington County will present a very special evening of music with the ME2/Orchestra.
The ME2/Orchestra is the world’s only classical music organization created for individuals with mental illnesses and the people who support them. ME2/ serves as a model organization where people with and without mental illnesses work together in an environment where acceptance is expectation, patience is encouraged, and supporting each other is a priority.
“We are so excited to have the ME2/Orchestra perform in our community,” said Lorna Mattern, Executive Director of UCS. “Every performance brings them closer to meeting their mission to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness. This is going to be a very special event and a wonderful evening of music.”
UCS provides outpatient counseling and addictions services, emergency mental health services, extensive rehabilitation services, home and school-based services, employment services for people recovering from mental illness or with developmental disabilities and a Head Start and Early Start program. United Counseling Service has provided support and guidance to individuals and families since 1958

Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $15 for students and veterans, and children under 10 are free. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.com.
