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.



Performing Arts Channel – Channel 2

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.
