DAVENPORT, Iowa – Aug. 7, 2014 -- The musical talents of Quad Cities physicians and families will be featured in a recital to benefit music therapy programs for Genesis Health System hospice patients.

The fifth annual Genesis Doctors in Recital will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21 at Centennial Hall, Augustana College. Quad Cities physicians and their families will be performing a wide variety of music, from classical to contemporary.

Sponsors of the event include Augustana College, West Music, Steinway & Sons, Gendler’s Wine & Spirits, Kimberly BMW of Davenport, One Step Printing, Black Ram Restaurant in Rock Island and Genesis Foundations.

The performance will also feature the legendary Steinway Concert Grand Piano from the 2007 award-winning documentary “Note by Note” Steinway L1037.

Following the performance, will be a meet-and-greet with the performers at Gendler’s Wine & Spirits/Black Ram.

Music therapy programs are available to Genesis hospice patients in their homes, Genesis hospitals, nursing homes and at the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House. Music therapy has been shown to bring quality to life, diminish pain and promote relaxation during end-of-life care.
