Who We Are

MusicNow Foundation, Inc

Nightingale's Acoustic Café

The MusicNow Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Old Lyme, CT and founded in 2013. We are dedicated to the support of live music to engage, enrich, and educate young and old through workshop programming, performance opportunities and musical mentorships. We offer nurturing, creative opportunities for artistic growth to all ages, making music accessible to everyone.
Since inception we have welcomed hundreds of people seeking to explore the power of music through a safe and supportive collaborative community.
