Abu Dhabi - The Abu Dhabi Festival, in association with Mubadala, has brought the popular ‘Music in Hospitals’ initiative to healthcare facilities across the UAE for the sixth year running as part of its 2015 community and education programme.

Designed to enrich the lives of patients and provide an opportunity for community development between families and healthcare staff, the festival presents a series of recitals by young Emirati musicians of oud, piano and guitar for the patients and staff of various hospitals.

Nadine Saleh, Head of Social Development and Partnerships at Mubadala, said, “Our commitment to the community is an important component of the different youth empowerment and sponsorship initiatives we support. Not only does our collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, ADMAF, provide a platform to provide Emirati youth with enriching experiences that combine arts and science, but initiatives like Music in Hospitals provide a unique opportunity to give back to the community by using talent for a greater purpose.”

Music in Hospitals artists this year performed at Imperial College London Diabetes Centre, Tawam Hospital, Shaikh Khalifa Medical City, and RAK Hospital.
