Peabody’s Sound Rounds program brings musical services to patients’ bedsides at Johns Hopkins Hospital to provide comfort and companionship through music. Begun in 2018, the Johns Hopkins Sound Rounds program is part of a partnership between the Peabody Institute and the Johns Hopkins Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Councils.
