MusicianCorps brought the joy of music-making to children at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. 

MusicianCorps gathered with hospital staff, volunteers from Whole Foods, and parents to provide a fun musical day for the children - both those receiving treatment and siblings of patients at the hospital. Singing uplifting songs like "You Are My Sunshine" and "Stand By Me" helped kids keep their minds off the discomfort of medical treatments, and allowed them a chance to be kids again. In between songs, volunteers helped the children make their own musical instruments.
