GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Mary Free Bed is offering holiday cheer to its patients, courtesy of the Grand Rapids Symphony.

The symphony’s holiday concert is available on demand for the hospital’s rehabilitation patients, according to Mary Free Bed. They say the hour-long concert includes holiday classics such as “Sleigh Ride,” “Joy to the World” and “Fantasia on Greensleeves.”

“The Grand Rapids Symphony is extraordinarily grateful for the tireless efforts of frontline health care workers,” says President Mary Tuuk with the Grand Rapids Symphony. “We hope that the gift of music will bring hope and peace to patients and staff alike during this holiday season.”

Mary Free Bed says the show was made available to patients ahead of Christmas and can be viewed through Jan. 2.
