MOC has a song database that musicians must pick from when they select their repertoire for hospital visits. Other material outside of the approved song list may be submitted to MOC staff for approval.
Volunteer Musician applicants must submit an audition video which will be evaluated for suitability prior to acceptance into the program. MOC’s certification process is as follows:
- Volunteer Audition Video and Application
