We’re excited to deliver the last of the series of “The Power of Music” concert-fundraisers that have raised money for music in care homes since June of 2013.

While creating and managing the largest rural branch of Artists in Healthcare, MB as it’s voluntary Program Coordinator, Corey’s concert-fundraisers have raised over $10,000, while his grant writing has successfully been awarded $8,500 from the City of Brandon Grants. His outreach work has provided 320 concerts of live music for residents in Brandon, and there have been bi-weekly concerts for those in Souris’s Care Home and Victoria Park Lodge since January 2015.

Though this is the last concert-fundraiser that he can commit to voluntarily hosting (in either community), he will continue to manage the program and will be looking towards partnerships/support within Souris councils/businesses to continue to fund a program of therapeutic musical concerts in the future.

The funds raised in December 2014 will run out by mid June 2015, and the bi-weekly concerts have been so well-received! In light of this, Corey is planning his last concert-fundraiser on April 19th, 2015, at St. Paul’s United Church at 2pm in Souris, MB. All funds donated at this afternoon concert will be put towards providing music to those residing in the Souris District Personal Care Home and the Victoria Park Lodge. The amount raised will determine the amount/type of program offered. It has been expressed that the residents would GREATLY appreciate weekly concerts as opposed to biweekly.

Souris Program Costs for July-December 2015:
Bi-weekly concerts – $150/month x 6 = $900
Weekly concerts – $275/month x 6 = $1,650

The afternoon will feature a collaboration of choral music, violin, cello, guitar, clarinet and piano! Please come support a worthy cause and enjoy an afternoon of excellent music.
– Ticket Price: $15
– Available at the door.
– Tax-deductible receipts available for any donation above the $15 ticket price.
