Jacobs Music is proud to collaborate with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to raise funds for the hospital’s Music Therapy Program. The Music Therapy Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia helps children and families cope with pain, stress, fear, and other challenges of being in the hospital. Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia believes in the clinical proof that music therapy improves the lives of its patients.
Jacobs Music has a strong personal connection to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as many family members of Jacobs employees have been treated there, most notably Giulianna Rinaldi, daughter of Jacobs Music Vice President Robert Rinaldi and his wife Kimberly Touch Rinaldi. Giulianna was born with Down Syndrome and two heart defects. Her family remains deeply grateful to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for saving her life.
