Tonight, Diego Garcia will share the stage with Mike Doughty and Mutlu for WXPN’s 8th Annual Musicians On Call Benefit Concert. Proceeds from ticket sales support WXPN Musicians On Call, a community service program that sends musicians to six area hospitals where they perform at the bedsides of room-bound patients:
Since 2004, the WXPN Musicians On Call music programs have made a difference in the lives of more than 30,000 patients and their families in hospitals throughout the Delaware Valley.
Each week volunteer musicians conduct bedside performances throughout six facilities: The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Our Lady of Loudres Medical Center, the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. We’ve also provided CD Pharmacies to more than a dozen healthcare facilities in the Philadelphia region.
WXPN’s 8th Annual Musicians On Call Benefit Concert featuring Diego Garcia, Mike Doughty, and Mutlu begins at 7 p.m. at World Cafe Live; tickets to the all-ages show are $28.
