• Celebrating Nutrition Through Music

    This month, Carnegie Hall presents a series of health-awareness concerts at public hospitals throughout New York City. The concert series, called “A Celebration of Healthy Living,”  is presented by Musical Connections—a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute—in partnership with the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC).

    Come out to these free concerts taking place in four of New York City's boroughs to hear great music, learn about local health resources from professionals, enter giveaways, and participate in food demonstrations.

    For more information about the important role that music can play in healthcare settings, read this piece written by WolfBrown Associates and commissioned by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.

    Musical Connections offers community-based projects that link people to a variety of musical experiences that range from concert performances to intensive yearlong creative workshops, all designed to have a powerful impact on participants’ daily lives. In hospitals, musicians give performances that reinforce positive healthcare messages in the community. Learn more by visiting Musical Connections
