Marianne Williams Tobias, Ph.D., has shared her love of music with Indianapolis audiences for years through her work with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. But she has channeled her passion in a much more intimate manner at Eskenazi Health through the Marianne Tobias Music Program.

Started in 2013 with the donation of a concert grand piano, the music program has lightened the hearts and lifted the spirits of patients and visitors alike. The piano, located in the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation Concourse on the Eskenazi Health campus, is accessible to everyone and has been played by both professional and amateur music lovers, attracting spellbound crowds.

In addition, the Marianne Tobias Music Program has welcomed a diverse range of community and professional musicians to play on the Eskenazi Health campus. The public is invited to all performances.
