From January 16-19, MusicianCorps celebrated the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend by coordinating #musicMLK, a national effort to engage musicians in community service across the country. 

Over the four days, musicians volunteered their time and talent by visiting over fifty children's and veterans hospitals, homeless and women's shelters, and other settings to strengthen community connections through music.
