I have had so many great times with Kory just in the last couple months. We have played countless songs together and have even performed for the entire hospital at two different art shows. She helped me record my own christmas album and grow as a musician. I couldn’t have asked for a better music therapist or friend. That’s all for now! I hope you find Kory Antonacci as interesting as I do!
