We are thrilled to announce our newest season in partnership with the Saint Louis Symphony! Their fine musicians provide a welcome sensory refocus by performing cherished Classical selections for our patients in the outpatient Infusion Room. To say we are lucky to have them would be like saying “the ocean is wet” – an understatement!
It’s been a WHILE since I’ve posted a video on here, and I’M SORRY!!! Here’s a video that focuses on the importance of your rhythm hand, while teaching you the chords to an American pop classic – “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay”.
We are excited to continue our 3rd season with the Saint Louis Symphony! Thanks to their generous and ‘harmonious’ partnership with us at SLU Cancer Center, we are lucky enough to host Saint Louis Symphony performances in our Outpatient Infusion Clinic. These talented musicians volunteer their time to provide our infusion patients with a unique and rewarding experience during an otherwise unpleasant treatment. Symphony players perform in duos, arranging music from Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and even Modern composers to enhance patient relaxation and enrich their sensory stimulation. Patients, caregivers, and staff nurses alike are ‘infused’ with the healing power of the dynamic and emotive music – A classy cure for any “Case of the Mondays.”
