Michelle will speak with Caron Dale, Founder, CEO, President of the Board, Chords of Courage, an organization whose mission is to tell stories through song & video, to transform our country’s conversation from the demoralizing and cynical to the hopeful and inspirational one song at a time.
Through songs and videos, Chords of Courage puts names, faces and stories to the courageous among us who have performed acts of valor and suffered in the process or performed an act of inspiration born of tragedy.
Working with broadcast and social media, schools, and popular sites such as sporting events and concert venues, they share stories with the public hoping to interrupt the negative conversation in this country while inspiring young and old alike to perform their own acts of courage and kindness.
In additon to Chords of Courgae, Caron has also been designated as a Washington Performing Arts Society (WPAS) Artist for their Enriching Experiences for Seniors. She serves on the Executive Committee of the Songwriter’s Association of Washington, has served as an Advisory Board Member of the University of Connecticut School of Family Studies, and is a Founding member of the Early Childhood Music and Movement Association Greater Washington chapter.
