The Northshore Wranglers Program will dim the lights and singers will raise their voices in song at the 2013 Music Project concert from 7-9:30 p.m. on Dec. 6. The event will be held on the Northshore Senior Center stage, located at 10201 E. Riverside Drive in Bothell. Entry is free with donations accepted supporting the Northshore Wranglers Special Recreation and Community Inclusion Program.

The music project ties the study of music with a singing performance experience to create a unique program that empowers students. Under the tutelage of Bernadette Bascom, the Music Project kindles a spark for self-esteem, pride and creativity. Each student has the choice of song selection and the opportunity to enhance, highlight and share his or her individual talents through music.

Bascom is the creator of the music project and her work with it has become a prototype around the country for uplifting and self-esteem-building performances. Bascom has opened for Ray Charles and performed with acts such as Elton John and Stevie Wonder. Bascom was the first artist signed to Stevie Wonder’s label Black Bull. For 15 years, she was a headliner on the Las Vegas strip. In 2011 she joined the Wranglers Program and began to individuals with intellectual disabilities find their voices.

Since 1998 the Northshore Wranglers Program has offered activities, advocacy and support for individuals of all ages with intellectual, cognitive and developmental disabilities. Programs include families and caregivers, offering year-round, weekly and ongoing specialized and inclusive opportunities for all participants. The Wranglers is a non-profit program of Bothell’s Northshore Senior Center’s Health and Wellness Department.

All donations received will help support and sustain weekly opportunities, and help ensure a bright future of fun and friendships in Wranglers programming. Through a generous anonymous donor all donations received up to $10,000 will be matched.
