On February 19, 2020, Opera Workshop students of Professor Shelby VanNordstrand and Professor Hal France performed at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center thanks to Sound Health and Nebraska Medicine Healing Arts Program.
Sound Health bridges music and medicine through live performances by students who contribute to the environment of care and gain professional performing experience while contributing to their community.
Sound Health Engaging the Community
The mission of Sound Health is to enrich the health care environment for patients, families, health care providers and staff through live music while providing music students with an opportunity for service learning and professional performing experience. The goals of Sound Health are to contribute to a healing environment; to give music students community service learning opportunities; and to break down the “fourth wall” barriers, connecting musicians to their audiences and vice versa.
