“Music is this wonderful tool that can change and shape your day, your mood, your memories, and because of those reasons, there was no choice but to bring it to people who needed it most,” said Michael, who also co-founded Musicians On Call. “So the mission of Musicians On Call was to bring musicians in hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices and walk them room to room to play right at the bedsides of patients.”
Musicians On Call brings live and recorded music patients in health care facilities. Since 1999, they have performed for nearly half a million individuals.
