Drum Ensemble – “Sheltered Reality” : Music with Meaning @ The Mustard Seed
Aug 15 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Sheltered Reality uses drums, music and fun choreography to help audiences realize that each person we meet is unique, has special talents, and is deserving of kindness and support.

While we demonstrate the Steps of Success, audience members have a chance to succeed through participating in a drum lesson and performing with the group.

This process is meant to inspire all to become better individuals, but to also take action to help others succeed in life and be the best versions of themselves.

Sheltered Reality believes in the power of “US.” When we do things together, believe in and support one another, we can do great things. #USSIE

Sheltered Reality was founded in 1996 by Executive Director Steve Schlosser as a non-profit organization using music and education to reach out to audiences motivating them to advocate for those in need. The messages that are presented focus on facts and real-life stories from members that culminate in character education and ideas for action.
