Students and faculty from UIndy’s Department of Music are once again taking their talents out into the community through a series of daytime concerts this semester at Eskenazi Health.

Now in its third season, the University of Indianapolis Community Music Service Fellowship brings one-hour performances to the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation Concourse on the main level of the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, located off West 10th Street at 720 Eskenazi Ave. The concerts not only enhance the atmosphere for hospital patients, staff and visitors, but are open to the public as well.
