Music in the Atrium

All patients, their families and visitors as well as NIH staff are invited to attend these performances. 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.

"I love that NIH hosts concerts in the Clinical Center atrium. A tangible way that artists and scientists help make each other better, literally." - Barbra Streisand (Guest Speaker at the May 2018 NIH J. Edward Rall Cultural Lecture)

The NIH Clinical Center has resumed scheduling concerts that include wind instruments and vocal performance. Please note this is subject to change at anytime.

If you are interested in performing in the Clinical Center atrium, please submit a request.

Please check back often for new performance dates.
