Musicians On Call Celebrates Five Years Of Service

MUSICIANS ON CALL (MOC) NASHVILLE is celebrating five years of service. They are celebrating this milestone with a year filled with new programs and events to continue its growth in MIDDLE TENNESSEE. Since their launch in APRIL 2007, the organization has provided music to more than 50,000 patients, staff and families in MIDDLE TENNESSEE. Through the generosity of local volunteers and supporters, MOC NASHVILLE has been able to sustain ten BEDSIDE PERFORMANCE PROGRAMS and expand into six area hospitals with its brand new program kicking off later this month at MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL at VANDERBILT. The program has had the help of artists like TRACE ADKINS, DARIUS RUCKER, BLAKE SHELTON and KELLIE PICKLER.
Additionally, in celebration of this benchmark year, a special edition Fifth Anniversary HATCH SHOW PRINT commemorative poster will be produced this SUMMER. Similar to the Hatch Show Print marking the Grand Opening of MOC NASHVILLE in 2007, supporters have the opportunity to include their names on the print by donating $100 to the cause by MAY 25th. Spaces are limited, so MOC encourages donations early to secure inclusion on this year's print. Donations may be made here.
MOC Nashville has also constructed a YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COMMITTEE (YPC) consisting of young professionals and volunteers in music and related industries to help raise funds and awareness among their peers. The YPC recently threw their first NASHVILLE event where they successfully raised over $1,500 towards their goal of $10,000, which is enough to add yet another weekly program to an area healthcare facility.
