Tafelmusik to Bring Free Digital Concerts to More Than 1,000 Seniors' Facilities

 

Tafelmusik has announced that it will partner with Concerts in Care, an Ontario organization that brings professional-grade concerts into seniors' homes, long-term care, and assisted living facilities. Between March 7 and April 4, the partnership will present four free digital concerts.

The initiative will be rolled out through a network of provincial organizations that all carry out similar work to Concerts in Care. These groups include Health Arts Societies (Western Canada) and LaSAMS (Quebec), which between them have presented more than 15,000 concerts to seniors across Canada since 2006.

"The ongoing partnership between Concerts in Care and Tafelmusik constantly reveals new opportunities,” said Debra J. Chandler, the Executive Director of Concerts in Care Ontario.

"Over the past two years, each of us has cultivated audiences who enjoy our excellent music and find relief from isolation in our regular online concerts. They feel the difference that quality makes in concert performances, and they delight in the ‘passion and compassion’...which all Tafelmusik and Concerts in Care musicians embody."

"Many seniors, especially those living in residences or long-term care, have experienced dark days of loss, loneliness, and uncertainty throughout the global pandemic," said Carol Kehoe, Tafelmusik's Executive Director. "Our digital concert offerings can provide a crucial lifeline to them amidst the chaos of this period. It is our hope that this initiative can bring the beauty of music to those who need it most right now."
