DAVENPORT, Iowa – Sept. 3, 2013 -- The musical talents of Quad Cities physicians and families will be featured in a recital to benefit music therapy programs for Genesis Health System hospice patients.

The fourth annual Genesis Doctors in Recital will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22 at Centennial Hall, Augustana College. Quad Cities physicians and their families will be performing a wide variety of music, from classical to contemporary.

Sponsors of the event include Augustana College, West Music, Steinway & Sons, Gendler's Wine & Spirits, One Step Printing, Black Ram Restaurant in Rock Island and Genesis Foundations.
