WXPN 5k Run for Musicians On Call

Sunday, October 15 (Virtual Run/Walk 10/08-10/15) Directions

WXPN Musicians On Call



It’s no secret that music can help you feel better. 
That’s why WXPN Musicians On Call brings music to the people who need it most – hospital patients.

WXPN Musicians On Call brings live music to the bedsides of patients in nine area hospitals throughout our region. Drawing on WXPN's strong relationship with the local music community, volunteer musicians led by volunteer guides began providing in-room, bedside performances for patients and their caregivers in Delaware Valley hospitals in 2004.

In 2020, Musicians On Call took its programs virtual in order to reach patients and caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. As of June 2023, volunteer guides and musicians are returning to live in-person performances at several facilities, with more scheduled to return this summer and fall. The funds you raise will go directly to supporting the recruiting, training, and onboarding of new and returning volunteer guides and musicians and is crucial to delivering the healing power of music to all nine facilities.

Musicians On Call Offerings:

  • In-person and Virtual Bedside Performances connecting volunteer musicians and guides with hospital-bound patients.
  • Spanish Virtual Program offering a 30-minute live performance led by Spanish-speaking volunteers. 
  • Music Pharmacies consisting of tablets equipped with streaming services and top-of-the-line headphones ready for patient use
  • #MOCheals Playlists offered to patients and caregivers to provide soothing and uplifting music whenever they need it.
