William E. Rice Concerts for Hospitals
“Our Veterans are given a moment during a stressful time in which they can relax and simply listen to a professional musician playing specifically for them and feel appreciated because of their service to our country.”
Texas Winds believes that music brings inspiration, peace and relief from serious cares. It is the purpose of this program to help and comfort hospitalized Veterans and others by sharing love and compassion through the nourishment of great music.
Texas Winds musicians provide a caring environment, improving the morale and well being of patients, family members, doctors, nurses and hospital staff.
Concerts are given in Dallas County hospitals and in Dallas and Fort Worth branches of the VA North Texas Health Care System.
