Music at The James

Ni Yan Playing HarpThe Heather Pick Music Program presents regular live musical performances featuring a diverse offering of musical styles and genres. The mission of the program is to use music as a means to create a healing environment and reduce discomfort, stress and anxiety for those affected by a cancer diagnosis. Patients, caregivers, staff and visitors can enjoy the performances throughout the week, which take place in The James lobby.

Musicians Performing on Live StreamOn any TV in The James, including every patient room, you can access our 24-hour performing arts channel, Channel 2. The channel displays recorded Heather Pick Music Program performances, as well as warm and relaxing audio and visual, in a manner which we hope brightens your experience at The James. Each month, some of the Heather Pick Music Program performances will also be live-streamed to the rooms on this channel for those unable to attend lobby performances.
