Music in the Atrium

All patients, their families and NIH staff are invited to attend the performances in the Clinical Center atrium. The north atrium is a comfortable, welcoming gathering place at the center of the Clinical Center. These concerts are intended to support the Clinical Center's environment of care and healing. Strict social distancing measures will be maintained. Health and safety are our main concern.
