The Magic of Music

Support Music Therapy at HCMC

Music soothes the soul during our most stressful and difficult times. At Hennepin Healthcare, patients in our HCMC hospital can find refuge and relaxation in the sounds of music therapy.

An upbeat song can energize a child who is tired from many appointments. A dying woman relishes in music when words fall short, and a patient receiving cancer treatment connects with lyrics that remind them of a special memory

You can amplify the healing power of music with your donation today.

Sue Mitlyng, accompanied her husband to radiation treatments and appreciated listening to acoustic guitar and vocals from Music Therapist Karin Vaccaro. 

“She would ask my favorite songs to sing,” Sue shared. “I am very pleased this music is available for patients and their families.” 

Bring moments of respite and healing through the magic of music and double your impact during Give to the Max Day.

We have $5,000 on the table to match in order to provide $10,000 in support to our Music Therapy program. 

Any gift is doubled: 

  • $30 donation + match = $60 and provides music therapy for four patients and their families. 
  • $60 donation + match = $120 and provides a concert of soothing music in the main area of the medical center. 

Our Music Therapy program relies solely on philanthropy to exist, making it doubly important to give today. Your gift, no matter the size, will be instrumental in bringing the joy of music therapy to those who need it most.
