About Heart Beat:

In the 2014-2015 season, the Walla Walla Symphony launched a new music and wellness initiative titled "Heart Beat," sponsored by Walla Walla General Hospital (WWGH).  In June 2017, a Heart Beat performance took place at the Washington State Penitentiary. From military veterans to incarcerated offenders, the Heart Beat program aims to take music to everyone and provide meaningful experiences.
