Musicians On Call has teamed up with the ACM Lifting Lives to formally launch the new Bedside Performance Program for patients, families and caregivers in Las Vegas. Musicians On Call’s Bedside Performance Program brings live, in-room performances by Volunteer Musicians to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds. This will be the first ongoing Musicians On Call programming taking place in Las Vegas at Sunrise Health System hospitals.
The partnership follows Musicians On Call’s impactful Las Vegas emergency response to the Route 91 Harvest festival tragedy. One week after the tragedy, Musicians On Call brought members of the country music community, Charles Esten, Michael Ray, The Railers, Brandon Ray and Filmore to visit hospitals including Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas to bring joy through music in a time of need. Sunrise Hospital is a member of Sunrise Health System. Together with MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, the Sunrise Health facilities cared for 230 Route 91 victims.
As we build Musicians On Call in Las Vegas, we are looking for Volunteer Guides and Volunteer Musicians to help us deliver the healing power of music. As a volunteer with Musicians On Call, you can brighten the days of patients – a truly rewarding experience.
Volunteer Guides escort Volunteer Musicians bed to bed and room to room as they perform for patients. Volunteers must commit to volunteering one visit each month for at least one year. All volunteers must fulfill Musicians On Call’s training process, which includes an application, orientation and quiz. Volunteers Guides will need to complete additional clearances from the hospital including a hospital orientation and health screening.
