Music in the Atrium
The first three Wednesdays of every month, 9a.m. - noon.
The lobby of the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center is transformed into an inviting and uplifting venue where patients and caregivers are met by specially trained volunteers offering them light refreshments, kind smiles and the opportunity to relax before or after treatments, tests and doctors’ appointments. Pianist Bob Egan entertains, taking requests for their favorite tunes or organizing sing-alongs and even solo performances. Music in the Atrium provides visitors to the Cancer Center with a place to meet, enjoy, connect, and share experiences while cancer takes a back seat for a few moments.
The second Monday of each month, 9:30 - 11:30am.
Once a month on a Monday morning, patients and visitors are invited to have tea in the lobby of the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center. A harpist serenades them while they drink tea, eat a scone or sandwich, and chat with the volunteers. The atmosphere speaks not of cancer, tests, scans, or anxiety, but of raised spirits, gentle music, and uplifted souls. This is a joint venture between the Jeffrey F. Wacks Music Therapy Program and the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center.
Healing Through Drumming
The fourth Tuesday of each month (except December), 7 - 8:30pm.
This African drumming workshop is open to the community. Drums are provided and no musical experience is necessary. This free workshop is interactive and fun for all ages.
