University Hospital in San Antonio: Monday Musical Interlude @ Peveto Chapel
SAYC singers used their voices to inspire healing and to bring solace and hope to others. SAYC students and orchestra offered a musical interlude in song to help relieve the suffering of the patients and their families. Lili Madsen of the UT Health Science Center sends the following word to all members of the SA Youth Chorale, orchestra and team: "Our sincerest thanks for your marvelous and inspiring Music for Healing contribution! Your talents provided immense comfort and soothing power to all who were able to attend. We are so grateful that you took your time to come and deliver such a heart-warming concert. You touched the hearts of many and we are profoundly grateful".
