Come enjoy an evening of choral, piano and cello music, and assist me in establishing Souris’s very own “The Musical Outreach Project, Artists in Healthcare, MB”!

Through this outreach project, I hope to bring accomplished musicians into such places as the town’s care home, assisted living facility and manor, to perform therapeutic music sessions for the people in need. We hope to be able to respond to this need with 2-3 concerts of music each week.

This music enables residents to transcend barriers of restlessness, communication, depression and disease; thereby improving their quality-of-life and restoring a sense of self that is often muted by the dreariness of living in a facility. Our music programs have therapeutic effects that calm the wards and bring happiness into their homes.

So, with regards to our coming fundraiser, in addition to myself, we welcome cellist Alanna Hunter, pianist Lois Park, and the Trinity United Choir (from Trinity United Church in Brandon). The evening combines many varieties of music, from classical, to sacred, to Christmas themed!

Please come out to support a worthy cause, and enjoy an excellent concert!
