Who are we ? 

André Boulanger – Director

« Music in the hospital: just a moment of shared happiness ! »

After studying law and political science, André Boulanger learned to play the cello at the École Normale de Musique de Paris. Alongside a long career in finance, André developed a passion for chamber music. Convinced of the exceptional benefits of music and other forms of artistic expression on hospitalized people, he regularly plays the cello, alone or accompanied by other musicians, to children in the intensive care unit of a major Parisian hospital. Today, he is involved with the Hop We Care team to develop multiple projects for patients, their families and caregivers.
