The Melodic Caring Project (MCP), the Seattle-based non-profit founded by musician Levi Ware and his wife Stephanie, has already brought the healing power of music directly to the hospital beds of more than 100 critically-ill children since it officially launched a year ago. This unique marriage of music and technology is now expanding its ability to reach patients through new partnerships with the global Starlight Children’s Foundation as well as with Seattle area music event resources.

Filling the real and pressing need for new and innovative approaches to music therapy, MCP has already presented live music performances by some 100 music artists, among them Brandi Carlile, Tyrone Wells and Richard On of OAR, as well as a host of Seattle-based and national touring musicians through its association with the Seattle Living Room Shows concert series. Additionally, they have now partnered with the Seattle Theatre Group to stream live performances and music from three of Seattle’s premier theatres-the Paramount, Moore and Neptune-which will include events such as the upcoming annual Synergia Northwest Presents concert backed by a 50-piece orchestra from the Moore Theatre.
