Santa Comes Early to Children’s Hospital of Alabama
A dream has come true for Children’s Hospital of Alabama. It began 18 years ago when, every Christmas, Ellis Piano donated a piano to Children’s Hospital for a weekend of cheerful holiday music provided by volunteer pianists from the Birmingham area. The patients and staff enjoyed it so much that, over the years, a weekend turned into a week and a week into a month.
This year, however, thanks to a generous donor, Children’s can enjoy music starting in September and continuing through not just Christmas, but year-round! This private donation made it possible for the hospital to purchase a brand new, concert-series, Yamaha Grand from Ellis Piano.
We all know the pain of seeing a child struggle in a hospital to regain his or her health. We musicians, along with today’s medical profession, believe that music also heals. How joyful we are that Ellis Piano was able to help make this dream become a reality for Children’s Hospital.
Congratulations, Children’s Hospital of Alabama, on your beautiful new grand piano! May its notes bring music to your ears, comfort to your soul, and healing to all the little angels there that we call Children. Merry Christmas now and for many years to come!
