Just in time for the holidays, the healing power of music will fill the lobby of Ambulatory Surgery at Palmetto Health Baptist as the S.C. Philharmonic’s Healing Harmonies program brings a string quartet to play holiday favorites and classical music for patients and their families.
WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 14
TIME: Noon-12:30 p.m.
PLACE: Palmetto Health Baptist, Ambulatory Surgery lobby
ABOUT: Healing Harmonies was started in 2013 by Samuel Tenenbaum, president of Palmetto Health Foundation, and the South Carolina Philharmonic Board Member Frank Clark, M.D., a psychiatrist who completed her residency at Palmetto Health and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. Clark has since moved out of state, but his vision for the program has grown.
Now in its third year, the program currently provides music to patients, staff and visitors of Palmetto Health Baptist, Palmetto Health Richland and Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital. During the 2016-17 season, Healing Harmonies will present a 10-concert series throughout Palmetto Health. This project is fully underwritten by a generous grant from an anonymous donor.
Composer and musician Dick Goodwin and up to five other S.C. Philharmonic musicians perform a variety of music – from classical and jazz, to big band and patriotic, depending on what is most appropriate for the audience.
