La Speranza is bringing live music to patients at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center! Currently once every month, one of our musicians visits the rooms of patients who have been identified and recommended by nursing staff and brings a few minutes of solo Bach into their day. Musicians stay at the hospital for between 60 and 90 minutes each month.

With this crowdfunding campaign, we are hoping to bring TWO musicians to play duets and/or solo music on different floors each month for an entire year.
All the funds we receive will go towards compensating our wonderful musicians.

With your support, live music on historical instruments will impact
- up to 168 patients who are visited by musicians
- up to 840 nurses, doctors, and caregivers
- up to 1,200 other patients who are not able to have visitors but can still hear the music.

From one patient: "I was worried about my surgery tomorrow, but now I feel calm. You've brought peace to my soul."
Another said, "I will close my eyes and bask in this sound for the next hour."

With your help, hundreds and even thousands of patients can have this experience. Please consider a donation today!
