Swan Songs brings comfort, joy, and a respite from illness through music to families during an emotional and difficult time by organizing personalized concerts for individuals who are terminally ill or nearing the end of life.The organization’s core program is the fulfillment of musical last wishes. Recipients may request a certain style of music or a specific musician to perform for them and their loved ones in a very intimate concert setting. The concerts are 30-40 minutes in length, are typically unplugged and provide an opportunity for a gathering with a focus on the music instead of the illness. There is no charge to the patient or family for this service. Swan Songs recognizes that the talent and expertise of the participating musicians are an invaluable part of their success and, therefore, musicians are offered an honorarium for their time. In this way, Swan Songs fulfills its secondary mission – to support the health of the Austin area music community.
