Frequently Asked Questions

Are the performers paid?

Yes.

Why should performers be paid?  Wouldn’t they do this work as a service?

A great many performers have visited health care sites as volunteers, but artists cannot be expected to give away their services on a regular basis. Health Arts performances are professional, consistent and regularly delivered.  It is entirely appropriate and necessary that the work of performer partners of the Society be paid for.    
                                                   
Is a range of genres provided?

Programmes usually feature from one to four performers offering a wide range of genres including Western classical music, light music, jazz, world music and spoken word.
