Musicians On Call launched the Washington, DC branch in 2011.  MOC's first initiative is to bring our weekly Bedside Performance Program to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. 

MOC has been fortunate to receive two grants in 2010 towards starting our Washington, DC branch.   MOC received a $50,000 Challenge Grant from FJC, a Foundation of Donor Advised Funds.  We are grateful to the Academy of Country Music Lifting Lives and Verizon for their generosity.  The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has been a champion of MOC, Washington, DC and has generously donated office space to us.
