Plays for all religions

Though a Catholic, Dr. Long plays piano and lever harp while singing in Hebrew, Arabic, Latin and English for different people of different religions who are being treated at the hospital. She uses a little lap harp in the patients' rooms and community rooms for gatherings of small groups of people.

Senior Centers

Marsha volunteers at the Carmelite Nursing Home of St. Theresa of the Little Flower in San Diego. There she performs with a Troubadour harp and gives musical events with her mother singing as well. In New York Marsha has played for special celebrations with concert harp, Celtic harp or the piano. Thanks to an in house video system many who are unable to attend are able to watch the performances in their rooms.

Assists at leading hospitals.

On a regular basis, Dr. Long brings her healing music to NY Hospital, Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Hospital of Special Surgery

Radio for the Blind

Dr. Long has shared her music with the blind and been interviewed several times by the Radio Reading services of Youngstown Ohio.
Masses for the Deaf

The late Cardinal O'Connor was principal celebrant each January at St. Elizabeth's Church in Manhattan, a church dedicated to special deaf ministries, the confirmation mass. Marsha often accompanied the deaf choir as they signed parts of the mass. She also played incidental music on the small harp which Cardinal O'Connor called "hauntingly beautiful."
