Musicians On Call (MOC) will host its Millions of Moments event at the Wildhorse Saloon on Jan. 26. The organization will also mark a major milestone as they tally performances for more than one million people in hospitals nationwide since its founding in 1999.
UMG Nashville recording artist Darius Rucker will be recognized for more than a decade of support for MOC as he receives the Music Heals Golden Ukulele. Additionally, UMG Nashville Vice President of Media Marketing, Leigh Parr Malleus, will receive the Leadership in Music Golden Ukulele for serving as a Volunteer Guide for MOC’s Nashville-area hospital programs and connecting artists to MOC’s programs and live music campaigns.
The evening will also recognize the volunteers, artists, hospital partners, patients, families, and caregivers, and will feature special appearances and performances from Sam Hunt, The War And Treaty, and Jon Pardi. Tickets go on sale on Dec. 27 at 10 a.m. CT.
“From our early days bringing music to a single hospital, to playing virtually for over 250,000 patients and caregivers nationwide during the pandemic, our organization has grown tremendously since 1999. This evening will allow us to celebrate these accomplishments and the people who are a part of them,” notes Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “Honoring Darius’ and Leigh’s volunteer work with us, before, during, and since the pandemic, is a wonderful way to not only highlight their dedication and generosity, but also to spotlight the many chapters of MOC’s evolution.”
Guests at the event will be the first to experience a new proprietary, online platform that will transform MOC’s program delivery model and enable the organization to scale dramatically. MOC will also debut its new logo, revamped website, and fresh branding.
The public will be able to participate in a silent auction ahead of the event and bid on items such as signed guitars furnished by Gibson Guitars, red carpet access, and artist experiences.
