Thomas Sweitzer and Kim Tapper

Thomas Sweitzer and Kim Tapper founded A Place to Be, a music and expressive arts therapy nonprofit based in Middleburg.

Local music therapist Tom Sweitzer will present his one-man show, "Meatballs & Music," in three performances later this month.

All ticket proceeds will benefit his nonprofit organization, A Place to Be, which specializes in music and expressive arts therapy for people facing medical and life challenges.

Sweitzer's two-hour production "takes you on a journey through his dark and intense, yet humorous and courageous childhood," as written on the online event page, which also notes that the presentation will feature "mature and explicit content."

The first two performances will take place at Creative Cauldron — located at 410 South Maple Ave. in Falls Church — on Sept. 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. as part of the venue's Summer Cabaret Series. Tickets are available online at

The third performance will be presented at The Hill School — 130 South Madison St. in Middleburg — on Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at

More information on A Place to Be can be found at or by calling 540-687-6740. All donations made to the organization are tax-deductible.
