Music in Hospitals and Nursing Homes Using Entertainment as Therapy

Purpose Statement

Harvard-Radcliffe MIHNUET (Music in Hospitals & Nursing Homes Using Entertainment as Therapy) is a public service organization that brings live music from the Harvard community into hospitals and nursing homes around the greater Boston area. MIHNUET has several missions: to share the joy and therapeutic nature of music with the ill and elderly, to build positive relationships between the Harvard community and these residents through music and conversation, and to foster a dual sense of service and community among Harvard musicians. We welcome performers and ensembles from beginner to conservatory-level, and from all musical genres and backgrounds! For a peek at how our past trips have gone, check out our blog at!
