Healing Through Music uses the technology of MOC’s Virtual Bedside Performance Program to connect artists with patients and caregivers. MOC volunteer musicians perform remotely for patients via live broadcasts through hospital closed-circuit TVs and in-home services. and MOC has expanded this program to serve more patients in need. Currently, more than 15,000 people have enjoyed virtual performances during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Hospital patients are currently facing higher levels of isolation and caregivers are pulling double duty with both their traditional roles and COVID-19 response. In such a stressful environment music can have a profound positive impact,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “With the support of Hyundai Hope On Wheels, and the help of many of Musicians On Call’s compassionate artist supporters, it is our honor to share the healing qualities of music with the people who need it most and bring joy during strenuous days. We hope these performances will give these incredibly deserving patients and healthcare professionals some unforgettable moments to hold onto.”
