A non-profit organization called "Voices In Time" has been entertaining the youth and elderly in Southeastern Massachusetts for more than 20 years. The organization makes more than 50 appearances each year at homeless shelters, senior centers, and festivals, displaying the musical talents of young people, ages 5 to 18. The program's director, Sharon Marie Jensen visits Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss the goals of the program, and explain why keeping music in the community is so important.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
