The Music, Unity & Social Expansion (MUSE) Foundation is a nonprofit organization located in Boston, MA. The mission of MUSE is to promote and foster social connection through music. We currently faciliate two bands, a drum circle, and teach private music lessons.
Mariah McElwee is a singer and songwriter from Brookline, MA. She's been writing lyrics her entire life and has recently began adding the ukulele to translate them into original songs! She is working on finishing her first EP, which will be released sometime within the next year!
Mariah is also the guitarist for the band The Next Big Thing. Originally joining the band as a vocalist, Mariah picked up the guitar in the spring of 2016. In only a year she has learned how to properly sing into a microphone and learned basic open chord shapes on the guitar.
Mariah has performed in 5 different concerts: The Sound of MUSE-ic Concert (Spring 2016), BTC Teenstock (Summer 2016), Special Olympics Tournament of Champions (Summer 2016), Winter MUSE-Fest (Fall 2016), and the Community Forum at All Saints Parish (Winter 2017). Way to go Mariah!
