Thank You for the Music...
Ed, a retired band and strings teacher for the Baltimore City and Howard County Public School systems, has been playing the piano since he was five years old, which made the decision to stop driving especially heart-wrenching. Would giving up his car keys also mean giving up his music? The answer was a resounding NO thanks to Neighbor Ride. Since 2015, volunteer drivers have provided over 350 rides – giving Ed the “wheels” needed to lend his talents to Musical Theatrix Children’s Theatre and Long Reach High School productions, to greet employees in the Symphony Woods Office Center with beautiful piano concerts, and to lead the music ministry at Journey of Faith Church as the Praise Band Leader. Ed may not be able to drive, but, with a little help from Neighbor Ride, his music plays on for hundreds of children and adults in our community!
