These Hospitals Are Going Above And Beyond In The Most Awesome Way!
Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Partnered with Wyoming Medical Center to provide live music
As part of a new music therapy initiative, the community orchestra has partnered with the local hospital to provide live shows once a quarter. The music therapy program is part of a bigger push to care for the whole patient – mind, body, and soul. Music helps fill in the gaps where medical science can’t reach. Musicians Turner and Walker have said they can see people light up when they play, and there is just something so soothing about hearing live music. Listen for yourself!
