Musician Medics

Musician Medics
“Playing it Forward” for others in the
Western New York Community


Music has long been regarded as source of healing for patients faced with illness.  

Officially launched in January of 2013, The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Musician Medics Program was inspired and modeled after other similar programs across the country with the goal of providing musical relief to patients and families in the Western New York area. 

Local and national musicians volunteer their time to perform several songs acoustic and talk to patients in an up-close and personal setting, such as a small gathering space or an individual hospital room.
The program has entertained patients and their families at hospitals and non-profit organizations throughout the Western New York area.

Are you interested in volunteering your time to serve as a performer or would like a Musician Medic to perform at your location? For more information please contact heidiraphael@aol.com .
