Our last entry by Austin Petsche, a junior from Western Reserve Academy, and our student volunteer this summer at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus. He was a guest blogger over the summer and covered places to see in the Heart and Vascular Institute.

For all those music lovers out there, the Gus P. Karos Grand Lobby in the Sydell & Arnold Miller Family Pavilion is a great place to kick back and listen to the soothing sounds of musicians and their instruments. Not only does this area have live music that comforts the soul, but it also has sculptures and poems that will catch any wandering eye.

Cleveland Clinic also offers a Music Therapy Program in which musicians go to patients’ rooms to help set goals and offer encouragement as they work toward recovery. It is a great program that can help to motivate and inspire those who might want just a little extra push coming from the comfort, inspiration and relaxation that sometimes only music can provide.

In my previous posts, I’ve illustrated some of my favorite things at the Heart & Vascular Institute as well as given you a head start with finding favorite things of your own. Now it’s up to you to explore and enjoy all Cleveland Clinic has to offer. Just remember: sometimes it’s alright to get lost because it is only then that you can truly find yourself.
