Since our founder Dr. Alton Barron conceived of the Musician Treatment Foundation; he alone has provided hundreds of uninsured professional musicians with free or very low-cost specialized orthopedic care for their upper limbs. MTF and its distinguished Board of Directors made it possible for those musicians to receive critical surgical and nonsurgical care in Austin and New York City valued at nearly $2 million. Last year with the creation of MTF’s Physicians for Musicians network of like-minded doctors, MTF is now prepared to assist financially-challenged professional musicians in two dozen cities, whether they are local or visiting.
We look back now at some of the wonderful musicians we were privileged to help and to their ongoing music careers. MTF is excited to invite you to meet 10 of them in person during our Spotlight Concerts in Austin this year! You can read about a few of them in our Musician Spotlights. We are grateful to Beerburg Brewing for hosting our series and to all of the musicians who will share their journey through injury and back to playing music.
None of what we do would be possible without the generous contributions of our physicians and supporters from all over the world. We hope you will make a donation of any kind and join the amazing group of MTF Supporters who #KeeptheMusicPlaying for us all.
