"Facing The Music" Program Testimonials

Lindsay Schoenberger Kanter, Cantor

"Still on cloud nine after an amazing Artist In Residence weekend with Dave Schlossberg, in honor of Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion month. Dave was absolutely incredible: If you have the chance to welcome him to your own community, don't miss it!"

- Lindsay Schoenberger Kanter

Jake Greenberg, Cantor

“Last night's program with Dave Schlossberg was nothing short of SPECTACULAR! Dave's presentation, entitled "Facing the Music," chronicles his spinal cord injury and the two-decade journey after the devastating car crash caused by a reckless drunk driver.

He inspired us all through an engaging retelling and a pathos that stimulated a wide range of emotions, a one-of-a-kind sense of humor and his dazzling talent as a musician, an eye-opening and thought-provoking perspective on the disabled as a whole, and countless valuable lessons for both the individual and the community as we work towards more awareness and inclusion.

Thank you, Dave, for an unforgettable evening!”

“Dave recently presented Facing the Music to the youth and adolescents in our Intensive Outpatient Program. Our kids and staff were all enthralled and inspired by his presentation. Dave tells his story with a great mix of heart and humor. He engaged well with our kids and very patiently answered their many questions, and even indulged us with taking song requests before he left. Dave’s messages about resilience, growth through trauma, and hopefulness toward the future clearly resonated throughout the presentation. Our kids benefited from meeting someone who is living the messages we endeavor to teach them. I highly recommend bringing Dave and Facing the Music into any youth-serving organization.”

“Dave Schlossberg's musical presentation about his journey of recovery since his spinal cord injury almost twenty years ago is compelling, moving, and inspirational. The message he delivers is one of gratitude and hope. Appropriate for audiences from pre-teens to seniors, an hour spent listening to Dave perform and share his story will likely leave you feeling both optimistic and blessed.”
