UMS, Gifts of Art offer playlists for faculty and staff

August 20, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

For the past 30 years, UMS has partnered with Michigan Medicine’s Gifts of Art program in bringing visiting world-class performers into medical settings for the benefit of patients, families and staff.

With the current limitations of public performances to prevent the spread of COVID-19, UMS and Gifts of Art are uniting to explore safe and innovative ways to bring the power of music to Michigan Medicine’s facilities.

One project that came out of this collaboration is a playlist series for which curators periodically gather tracks that inspire, uplift and soothe anyone who finds music a balm to the soul in these trying times.

Playlists will be made available for Michigan Medicine staff by clicking here. They can also be accessed on UMS’s Apple Music and Spotify accounts.

UMS and Gifts of Art are also exploring the possibility of offering pop-up outdoor performances on sidewalks and parking lots to create moments of healing for patients, families, and hospital workers.
