Have you ever wondered what the song Auld Lang Signe is really about and why it is sung every year at midnight when New Year's Eve turns to New Year's Day? Watch this video to learn the Enlish lyrics and remember some of the music and TV legends who transitioned in 2016, including Prince, Leonard Cohen, Florence Henderson, and Alan Rickman.
While it is always sung during a moment of celebration - when the ball drops and we all share hugs and kisses, Auld Lang Signe is a song of rememberance, celebrating the lives of those we have lost in years past and reminding us not to forget them in the New Year.

Dear CMDW Community:
Tis' the season for giving, and we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Center for Musical Development & Wellness, Inc (CMDW). CMDW is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible. We accept donations online and by mail.
Help us meet our annual fundraising goal by making your tax-deductible donation by December 31, 2016. Just as you are shopping for gifts for loved ones this holiday season, your gift to CMDW will make a world of difference to a child or adult who wants to learn music.Still not sure what CMDW is all about? CMDW was founded just over a year ago by a small but growing community of music lovers and educators. Our mission is to support the development of musicians of all ages and abilities from infants to seniors in the Greater New Orleans Area and online. Learn more.
What an amazing first year, and we are so grateful for this support!
