BHS Music Medics
Welcome to the Barbershop Harmony Society Music Medics Program. We are thrilled you are interested in hosting this program in your local community. Briefly, Music Medics is all about sending at least a quartet-size ensemble to sing exclusively at children’s hospitals in your local area on a monthly or semi-monthly basis.
This program is designed to be an ongoing, permanent project. It’s also simple to manage. Music Medics is loads of fun and incredibly rewarding for many people on many levels. First and foremost, it’s great for the young patients and their parents. The last thing they expect is to see people walk into their hospital room in scrubs and breakout by singing them a fun and uplifting song, when they are experiencing the drudgery of hospitalization.
Additionally, it can be very enjoyable for the staff at the nurse’s station when occasionally you reach into your regular chorus repertoire to sing them a song. Finally, nothing builds camaraderie and encourages quartet singing among your community of artists better than sharing this incredibly fulfilling experience with other Music Medics participants.
This BHS sponsored program is open to any one whether you’re a member or not.
Time To Get Your Scrub On!
If you are interested in starting a Music Medics program in your district or chapter or already have one, please let us know by filling out this short survey. Now is the time to get going and get your scrub on to join the growing number of Music Medics in the Society! We want to make sure that you are listed on the national registry for anyone interested in getting in contact with you. We also want to provide as much support as possible, so make sure you also check out the BHS Music Medics Guidebook, which will help answer some of your questions. And last but not least, don't forget to check out all the sheet music and songbooks on the BHS website! You can also contact Wayne Jackson, Nashville Music Medics, BHS rep., with any additional questions you may have at [email protected].com. With the number of vaccinations on the rise and the new masks and updated gathering guidelines from the CDC, some of the local children’s hospitals are starting to allow their volunteers back in for visitation. Luckily, that would apply to those who are Music Medics.
