The Plugged In teen band program will play in Boston later this month at the State House.
The group is going to play an acoustic set as part of Rare Disease Day at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 28.
This year's event will include performances by Plugged In students, art exhibits, presentations from patient advocates and a message from Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“Plugged In is a non-profit band program in Needham teaching kids aged 8 to 18 about using music to create positive change in the world,” said program coordinator Dan Croft.
Band members participate in weekly ensemble band classes, private lessons, a summer day camp, songwriting workshops, community performances and benefit concerts to raise money for causes and organizations.
“Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community to which young musicians feel a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express and be acknowledged for their musical interests and a chance to use their music to help others around the world,” said Croft.
