“Music therapy is not a new science; we know that music can calm anxieties and ease pain. Music from internationally renowned musicians provides a soothing experience for community members in the observation area after they receive their dose of hope,” said Vidant Chief Experience Officer Dr. Julie Kennedy Oehlert.

“I am very proud to have this wonderful partnership with Vidant,” said Four Seasons Artistic Director Ara Gregorian. “Four Seasons is committed to bringing great music and musicians to as many people as possible and I can think of no better way to do this during the pandemic than bringing musicians from around the world to regularly perform at the large-scale vaccine clinic.”

Four Seasons and Vidant have partnered for years to bring music and joy to patients at Vidant Medical Center via live performances and video recordings from acclaimed Four Seasons musicians.
