Gerald’s Private Symphony
A musician his entire life, Gerald longed to hear live music one last time.
Gerald had loved music his whole life. He was a drummer in a jazz band, and his daughter played tunes by his favorite musician, Buddy Rich, the entire time he was in our care. Gerald liked listening to music on tape, but he really wanted to hear a live concert one more time. We partnered with the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra to send a classical violinist straight to Gerald’s room at the Covenant Care Sacred Heart Inpatient Center. Gerald’s family was present at the “concert” and they sat and listened to the beautiful melodies together which was an incredibly moving moment – a tribute to the power of music, and the power of granting a wish.
