A Gift of the Heart is an organization to promote the arts for the purposes of education and development of local talent of all ages through the creation of quality, wholesome musical and artistic experiences.

A concept was born over 4 years ago when Lorin Miller and Pamela Marich teamed up to create an ensemble of local musicians and singers to bring a quality performance to the area to benefit local charities.  That blossomed into an idea now known as “A Gift of the Heart”. 

Director Lorin Miller shares his musical and artistic talents to create powerful performances for broad audience appeal.  “Mentoring and teaching musical artists at any age is of the utmost importance in our goals for A Gift of the Heart says co-founder and producer, Pamela Marich.

Working in the arts, A Gift of the Heart organization generates opportunities for the talent ensembles brought together to use their voices, instruments and their hearts as tools to make connections and foster relationships within the organization.
