VCU Health System Orchestra presents
SOUNDS OF THE SEASON
Fri, Dec 13 @ 7:30pm
Free **DONATIONS WELCOME!
Come celebrate the Sounds of the Season with Music and Medicine, the VCU Health System Orchestra. Get into the holiday spirit as we take you on sleigh rides and dream of dancing with pipers and flowers. Music and Medicine is a mix of healthcare professionals, staff, and students with community musicians that seeks to promote wellness and enhance relationships among team members, patients, families, visitors and the community, and to support fundraising for local health related charities. We are excited to continue our partnership with the Firehouse Theatre as orchestra-in-residence, and hope you will join us for a mix of winter and holiday melodies for the whole family. The concert is free to attend, and we appreciate any and all donations given at the door. We hope to see you there!
Music and Medicine is VCU Health System’s initiative to help connect the healthcare team to greater Richmond through the arts and to foster a sense of creative community among our musicians. The orchestra was founded in the fall of 2017 by Theresa Erichsen, RN and Francesco Celi, MD, and has since grown from 10 interested musicians to 50 regular musicians. Our mission is to promote wellness and enhance relationships among team members, patients, families, visitors and the community, and to support fundraising for local health related charities. The musicians are a mix of VCU pharmacists, doctors, occupational therapists, nurses, healthcare students, and community music professionals. We have performed for graduations and award ceremonies alike, and played for VCU Health, around the community with Classical Revolution RVA, and at the Veteran Affairs Hospital here in Richmond. We look forward to continued celebrations with the hospital and community as well as opportunities like this to play in amazing venues around the city.
