Music as Medicine

Music is a powerful force. It lifts spirits and brightens our moods. It can reflect our thoughts, encourage us to be more introspective, calm an anxious heart or sooth one’s spirit. Music makes our lives richer. It is an essential component of our most important moments. It changes how we feel, making everything just a little bit better.

As such, Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley seeks to bring the healing power of music to our patients, their families, visitors and all Mercy Health associates through a series of live and video-taped performances provided in association with the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra and Youngstown State University’s Dana School of Music.
