20 Seconds: A Play With Music

Play with Music


Tom Sweitzer, Music Therapist, Writer, Composer, and Actor takes us on a journey through his turbulent, colorful yet inspiring childhood. Raised by a dying compassionate Italian Mother and a Schizophrenic Father at age eight Tom runs away from home, lured by the music he hears pouring out from the church window across the street. When the church doors open, he’s met by a Sunday School teacher that changes his life forever.
