UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA Triple A WXPN/PHILADELPHIA is gearing up for their annual MUSICIANS ON CALL concert. It will take place on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11th at WORLD CAFE LIVE. This year’s show features INGRID MICHAELSON and MUTLU.
Under the guidance of APD HELEN LEICHT, WXPN has been actively involved with the MUSICIANS ON CALL program, which benefits hospital patients throughout the DELAWARE VALLEY. It is a non-profit initiative that brings musicians to local hospitals to perform at patients’ bedsides.
Since 2004, the program has touched the lives of more than 20,000 patients and their families in healthcare facilities throughout the PHILADELPHIA region. In addition to live music, the program also provides local hospitals with CD Pharmacies featuring a CD listening library and CD players for patients’ use.
