Beginning in September 2017, La Speranza will have the privilege of bringing music to patients and their families at Houston’s Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center through a new program called Sonorous Sojourns. One or two musicians will visit patients’ rooms and/or lobby areas once a month for informal performances and a short time of visiting. Patients can opt for a room visit (with a doctor’s approval), and musicians will also perform and visit in common areas.
Musicians will present appropriate solo or duo repertoire from the Baroque era on period instruments and spend time with each patient and their family. This program will allow hundreds of people to hear and be encouraged by music on period instruments during their time in the hospital.
La Speranza hopes to expand this program to other area hospitals. If you’re interested in bringing musicians from La Speranza to your hospital, please contact us.
