If you were a musician playing for a group at a healthcare facility and needed to get people moving, what song would you try playing? There are many great options to choose, and one of these is “The Toreador Song” from Bizet’s Carmen. Our musicians have included it in sessions at multiple facilities, including the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System’s H.J. Heinz Campus. In today’s video, PSO violist Penny Brill explains how she uses “The Toreador Song” to energize Music and Wellness Program participants.
