Meet Sarah Harralson, Our Featured Volunteer from Nashville!

Get to know our volunteers!

What Virtual Program do you volunteer with? I volunteer for Peds, Veterans, and Behavioral Health

How long have you been volunteering with Musicians On Call? I’ve been volunteering since 2015

What is your favorite song to play for patients? What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong has to be my favorite!

Which demographic do you love playing for and why? I love playing for all demographics, but it’s always very special playing for children because they are so attentive and have the best questions and requests. Music truly has such a positive impact on them.

What is your occupation outside of MOC?  I’m an Artist Royalty Analyst & Singer/Songwriter

Do you have any hidden talents? My Granddad was an accordion player in bluegrass bands, so I like to occasionally play the accordion, which I’ll incorporate into a virtual program soon! Also, fantasy football if that counts. MOC league, anyone?

What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? Growing up, I didn’t have a typical childhood and was a very quiet child. At a young age, I found music and songwriting as an outlet to express my feelings and it was very therapeutic. I know how healing music can be for people and that’s why I wanted to volunteer with MOC and provide music to people who need it the most. Through MOC, I was able to find my mission as an artist and songwriter, which is to create and share music that can help people in some way.
