EXPANDING PROGRAMS TO DELIVER THE HEALING POWER OF MUSIC

Musicians On Call has a vision of a world filled with the healing power of music. This vision is more critical now than ever.

Through the expansion of our Virtual Bedside Performance Program and Music Pharmacy in 2020, Musicians On Call (MOC) delivered music to more than 150,000 people virtually, the most in a single year in our history. There is still a critical need for the joys of live music in hospitals as pandemic visitor restrictions remain in place. This year, MOC continues to expand our virtual programs with a goal of reaching one million people throughout our 22-year history. MOC has an opportunity to be truly “on call” and will transform how the healing power of music is used to improve the patient and human experience.
