Honoring Florence Nightingale through music this September


Musical performances on Florence Nightingale’s life will be coming to West Seattle this September on Sunday, 23rd and 30th. #

This September, HEARTS: Health Enriched by the Arts is collab­o­rating with Admiral UCC and Provi­dence Mt. Saint Vincent to presents Nightin­gale: A Musical Regarding the Life and Passion of Miss Florence Nightin­gale.

Through original music and dramatic scenes, Nightin­gale follows Florence Nightingale’s life through her struggle to under­stand her call from God,” her resis­tance against her wealthy British family and Victo­rian society and her leader­ship during the Crimean War. HEARTS honors Nightingale’s work in health­care reform, creation of nurse training and the profes­sion of nursing in this modern take on her life.

HEARTS will perform Nightin­gale for two nights only before taking this musical to nursing schools, organi­za­tions, health­care insti­tu­tions and other venues in 2019 and 2020 in celebra­tion of Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday:
