Musically Mine is over for 2021. An archive of the submissions will be published this autumn.

LAMPS would like to welcome you to "Musically Mine," a new fundraiser project. The objective of this program is to build awareness of LAMPS and raise funds to support upcoming programs. The money raised during this campaign will be used to support LAMPS' local musical projects and charitable giving fund. To read more about LAMPS' work, click here.

Musically Mine is about the music you love. To participate, we are inviting you to create a short video where you introduce and play a piece of music that is important to you. Any music, any genre – any piece that has meaning to you. Don't play an instrument? No worries, use your favorite recording of the composition instead.


Your video should be transformative, not merely a performance or broadcast. For example, you could provide analysis, reflection, appraisal, appreciation or critique. Introduce the music by explaining its significance. Where did you first hear it? Why does it move you? What is its history? What are its connections to your experience? These are just a few ideas.. Have fun with it!

If you are not a musician, but still love music, we would love for you to contribute too. Consider narrating your memories of the tune or describing the tune from your perspective...
