“Music has the power to promote physical, mental and emotional healing in a hospital, and provides a sense of normalcy during a very difficult time. With the increased stress of the pandemic we have seen music bring incredible relief to patients who are isolated from their loved ones and the healthcare heroes on the frontlines,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “The demand for the joys of music is at its highest and through the support of Musicians On Call’s online auction and ‘I’m On Call’ initiative, we will be able to share music’s healing qualities with thousands more people at a time when they need it the most.”
