The Same Sky Project, piloted in fall of 2012, is an ensemble of 40-plus teenagers living with diverse challenges. They create and perform original work thematically rooted in empathy, kindness, joy, and hope to raise awareness about differences. The Same Sky Project is part of A Place to Be, a Middleburg-based, music therapy and counseling non-profit. It provides services to more than 200 families each week and has satellite hubs at the Paxton Campus in Leesburg and Inova Loudoun Hospital.
