Thrilled to announce we have played for 100,000 #MOCMoments through the @wxpnfm MOC program in Philadelphia! Here's one of our favorite #MOCMoments from our launch at Bryn Mawr Hospital with @mutlusonds
“Working with Musicians on Call has been a dream of mine for so long and I am so happy I finally got to be a part of this amazing organization. Being able to talk with the patients and share joy through music was an experience I will never forget. I am so grateful to @southwestair and Musicians on Call for making this happen!” - @brookeedenmusic after making #MOCMoments at Vanderbilt University Medical Center! : @nick_val_benik
Today we stand firm in our belief that music is, and always will be, a source of joy, healing and peace. All our to those in #Manchester.
Starting tomorrow, we are partnering with @skype and taking over their Instagram account to show how we bring live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. Be sure you’re following along for all the fun! #SkypeTogether
DC! Tune in tomorrow morning to @abc7dc as @eileen_whelan takes you behind the scenes at our bedside performance program with Volunteer Musician Nick Stukel and MOC Board Chair Mitch Glazier. You've got two chances to watch it at 7 and 9AM!
Thanks @alexandani for letting us join you at your Nashville opening! MOC President @whatuppete had the honor of being a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony and friend of MOC @brookeedenmusic performed in store!
On the 24th, Alex & Ani will be hosting a #charmedbycharity event at this very location to help support the healing power of music!
Stay tuned for more details!
I have witnessed so many powerful moments, but one evening Craig Morrison and I were on the MICU floor and our last room of the night was a somber young woman. Her mother was in the room, told us she had been through many surgeries and there was nothing more the doctors could do. Craig picked a fabulous song for the situation. The change in the patient was amazing. She perked up, giggled and swooned as Craig sang to her. She was so happy and begged for another song. Being our last room and that we were at the end of the hall, we stayed for a few more songs and hated to leave. That experience, filled with love, light, and music, may have been one of her last and was so powerful. I can still picture her enthusiasm and joy.
MOC's team got to join Volunteer Kelley at @JDCHospital! Kelley was a total rockstar with the patients and we couldn't be happier having her with us! #VolunteerWeek
#VolunteerWeek Volunteer Musician Ken Wenzel rocks the hospital halls in D.C. for local Veterans!
Have you ever been part of an impromptu jam session with patients or family in a hospital room?
Yes, on what used to be the [Walter Reed National Military Medical Center] Wounded Warrior floor. A soldier jammed with me on a signed Martin guitar given to him by John Mayer.
Today's Volunteer Week featured volunteer from Suzanne Arrabito holds the MOC mission close to her heart: "I lost my dad to cancer when I was 18 and I know firsthand how music helped to heal and inspire him–he never missed an opportunity to see me perform, even when he was sick. Also, as a music business professional for the last decade, it’s incredibly rewarding to be able to bring passions from my personal and professional lives together into one experience."
For #VolunteerWeek, we want to highlight some of the volunteers that make MOC possible, like Camille Cain Barnes from Dallas!
What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC?
Music can capture a feeling or recall a memory like nothing else can. It connects us to other people, other places and other times in life. I volunteer with MOC because I believe and have seen a song change the entire day for a patient. It's everything.
What makes MOC different from your other volunteer experiences?
MOC is different because it's personal. The musician is able to connect with the patient right where they are - in their bed in their hospital room - and bring them comfort and a smile.
