Meet Andrea Henderson, Our Featured Volunteer from Albuquerque!

Get to know our volunteers!

What Virtual Program do you volunteer with? I volunteer for Pediatric Programs

How long have you been volunteering with Musicians On Call? I’ve been volunteering for 4 years

Are you a volunteer guide or musician? Guide

What is your occupation outside of MOC? I am currently looking for my next work adventure, which means I have more time to guide MOC programs! Previous occupations include Parade/Show performer in the Walt Disney World Parks, Cruise Director, and Membership Rep. for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA).

Do you have any hidden talents? A little obscure, but I have a talent for selecting the perfect gift. I have so much fun coming up with personal and thoughtful gifts to give to my friends and family!

What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? A former colleague introduced me to MOC, and in 2018 I began guiding at Children’s National in Washington, DC. I was heartbroken when just over a year later I moved to New Mexico and could no longer guide programs. Lucky for me, shortly afterward MOC started doing virtual pediatric programs and I got to be among the first to guide them. I love and appreciate the arts and volunteering, so MOC felt like a perfect fit! I am incredibly lucky to experience the healing power of music firsthand. The joy I get from each program is immeasurable!
