Arts Enrichment

Enriching the Lives of our Community

EPAM seeks to enrich the healthcare environment by integrating music that calms, nurtures and inspires for the well-being of our community: patients, caregivers, employees, and students. Utilizing non-traditional settings such as public spaces in hospitals, waiting and family rooms, and hallways, our hospital community will experience personal and meaningful interactions with world-class musicians. Weekly public performances are held throughout the hospital public areas. See our events schedule.

Enriching the Lives of Artists

Artists experience new levels of performance and audience interaction with community of all ages and medical conditions. This experience brings deeper meaning to their work, and by reaching out beyond their comfort zone, artists learn the unspoken power and deep emotions elicited by their presence and use of the arts as a healing tool.

Rochester Medical Orchestra

The Rochester Medical Orchestra will be proudly hosted by the Eastman Community Music School beginning in Fall 2019. Drawing on the entire medical community of the Greater Rochester Area, the ensemble, following the great traditions of American civic orchestras, will meet to rehearse in large and small ensembles, and perform repertoire from various musical periods and for a range of skill levels. Learn more about the Rochester Medical Orchestra.
