CUMMING, Ga. — For 15 years, the Healing Sounds program has been bringing music to Northside Hospital patients and staff. But the program needs community support to continue.

On March 16, Healing Sounds will hold their "Pastries and Performance" fundraiser at the Northside Hospital-Forsyth, 1200 Northside Forsyth Drive in Cumming.

"The point of the Healing Sounds program is to bring music to the hospital," said Nancy Mack, the event's spokeswoman. "Because music heals; it's that simple."

Healing Sounds has musicians perform for hospital patients, visitors and staff. The musicians often play in the lobby of the hospital or at patients' bedsides.

In the past, the musicians also played for child patients of the hospital, as well as those in post-operation.

"So we're trying to broaden the program," Mack said. "In order to do that, we're having a fundraiser to bring in some funds, so we can bring more musicians in to provide this fabulous service for the patients."

The event will have multiple musicians and groups, including local guitarist Chuck Beckman, harpist Loretta Marks and the Main Street Strings.

As the name implies, coffee and pastries will be served to accompany the music, and door prizes will be awarded.

Tickets can be bought at the door for $12 or in advance in the hospital gift shop for $10.
