Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve Will Join Spectrum and Ovation on Thursday, Nov. 10 to Honor Note-Able Music Therapy Services
Spectrum today announced Note-Able Music Therapy Services will receive $10,000 through the 2021-2022 Stand For The Arts Awards, a partnership with Ovation TV that recognizes local arts, cultural, and educational organizations and programs. Since the initiative started in 2017, Ovation TV and Spectrum have given out 50 awards totaling $500,000 towards art education.
“By creating lasting change in the lives of people of all abilities through music, Note-Able Music Therapy Services is doing outstanding work to enrich the lives of residents of Reno,” said Adam Falk, Senior Vice President, State Government Affairs for Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of Internet, TV, Mobile and Voice services. “Our support of this initiative is yet another avenue for Spectrum to help make a positive impact in the communities it serves.”
In support of local access to the arts, Mayor Hillary Schieve will present a $10,000 Stand For The Arts Award to Note-Able Music Therapy Services, in partnership with Spectrum and Ovation TV, that will be used to support the organization as it raises money to fully fund renovations of its newly purchased facility. When complete, the facility should enable the nonprofit to serve more than 5,000 people in the community annually by 2026.
Mayor Schieve will join Spectrum and Ovation to present the $10,000 check to Note-Able Music Therapy Services as part of a private event on Nov. 10 for donors and supporters.
“I’m so excited to see the innovators at Note-Able Music Therapy Services recognized for their life-changing work,” said Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve. “I look forward to the organization’s continued growth within our community to help even more individuals truly thrive through music therapy. I applaud Spectrum and Ovation TV for supporting one of Reno’s finest gems.”
“We are honored to have been selected for this distinction, as music therapy garners wider recognition for its diverse application and demonstrable results,” said Manal Toppozada, MA, LPMT, MT-BC, executive director at Note-Able Music Therapy Services. “We appreciate every single acknowledgement acknowledgment and contribution as we seek to play a bigger role in improving the health of our region.”
Note-Able Music Therapy Services is one of a select number of organizations this year that will receive support in Spectrum markets across the country. Select arts organizations are awarded $10,000 Stand For The Arts contributions based on the following criteria: support of creative/artistic communities via economic and/or mental health recovery connected programs, commitment to accessibility and equity in the arts, and advocacy for underserved populations in their communities.
“We are thrilled to have the continued support of Spectrum as we recognize arts organizations through our Stand For The Arts initiative,” said Sol Doten, Senior Vice President, Content Distribution and Partner Marketing for Ovation TV. “Now more than ever, it is imperative for us to support local arts organizations like Note-Able Music Therapy Services, as they have been fundamental in supporting their own communities.”
Added Charles Segars, CEO of Ovation TV and Founder of Stand For The Arts: “Ovation and Stand For The Arts are pleased to highlight the arts community of Reno. We are doubly pleased to join Spectrum and Mayor Schieve in congratulating Note-Able Music Therapy Services for bringing equitable and inclusive arts programming to the community.”
