Swan Songs fulfills musical last wishes by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness or nearing the end of life. At no cost to the family, a favorite style of music or regional musician is brought directly to the home or care facility. Committed to supporting live music in the community, Swan Songs compensates its musicians for each performance.
Swan Songs envisions a world where the end of life is celebrated through the gift of music to anyone wishing to receive a peaceful and joy-filled moment in time.
Swan Songs works diligently to match the style of music requested with the appropriate musician(s). The variety of requests over the years reflects how deep an individual’s connection with music can be – based on a lifetime of memories, culture, heritage, and geography. For the time being, we will continue to provide recipients with virtual concerts only in order to keep our loved ones safe. Whatever connects the recipient to those memories, their family, their joy – that is what Swan Songs brings.
