With just one song in a hospital lobby in New York City 22 years ago, Musicians On Call co-founders Michael Solomon and Vivek J. Tiwary witnessed the healing power of music for the first time.
Seventeen years later, MOC celebrated the milestone of delivering the joy of live music to half a million patients, families and caregivers. And now – in just five short years – thanks to innovations in the Virtual Bedside Performance Program and the dedication of MOC Volunteers, we are nearing one million people played for in healthcare facilities nationwide!
That’s one million smiles from special memories connected to music. One million moments to stop and take a calming breath. One million people who experienced the healing power of music for themselves.
