Performing Artists in Residence

With generous support from The Nord Family Foundation, The Stocker Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council. 

Beginning in 2019, OCA launched the Performing Artists in Residence, or “PAIR” Program, connecting students from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with partnering institutions Mercy Allen Hospital and Welcome Nursing Home. Using the arts as a tool for healing and for building understanding, the PAIR program introduces music into lobbies and along bedsides, to leverage its ability to help alleviate pain, reduce stress and decrease overall recovery time. PAIR provides an opportunity to build community and foster personal connections amongst students and area residents. Furthermore, the health benefits of music in medical institutions extends to care providers by lowering the rates of tension and fatigue in nursing staff.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO HEALTH GUIDANCE ALL IN-PERSON PERFORMANCES HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED. PLEASE SEE OUR UPDATED PROGRAMMING HERE
