July 21, 2009 - Capitol Nashville’s Emily West took part in Lollipop Theater Network’s Rhythm of Hope event last week at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Rhythm of Hope is an interactive music program for pediatric patients that gives children a chance to create their own songs while learning the building blocks of music. After getting to meet and visit with all the children Emily and the kids performed the song they created together at the end of the day.
“What a wonderful day I had today,” says West. “Those kids are angels; it was such a sweet relief to be around them. Smiling, laughing, making loud drum sounds with them....it was all just sweet for the soul. I intend to spend as much time with these kids as much as I can.”
