Caesars Windsor Cares Music & Movement for Health Program

 

 

 

With the support of Caesars Windsor, the Caesars Windsor Cares Music & Movement for Health Program consists of two types of performances for residents in care facilities and individuals and groups enrolled in day programs at social services agencies in the Windsor-Essex region.  

 

The Music for Health program is based upon the growing body of evidence that shows the positive impact music has on mental, emotional, and even physical health.  Developed by two WSO musicians who have worked very closely with local music therapists in hospital settings, this program features performances by WSO string quartets and quintets at rest homes, retirement homes and social service agencies across Essex County.  Clients are encouraged to participate in the performances through the use of small hand percussion (provided), selecting works that the ensemble will perform, as well as sharing memories and recollections evoked by the performance.  

 

Program length: Each performance is one hour in duration

 

Cost: Cost ranges from $200-$400 per performance.  We are happy to work with you to find a price that works with your budget 

 

Schedule: Dates are available in December, January, and throughout the season by request. For more information or to book your performance, please be in touch with WSO Education & Outreach Manager Faith Scholfield (education@windsorsymphony.com), 519-973-1238 x 18.  

 

 

 

Similar to the Music for Health program, the Gift of Music program is also designed specifically for residents in care facilities and individuals and groups enrolled in day programs at social service agencies in the Windsor-Essex region.  This program features performances by WSO string quartets and quintets at rest homes, retirement homes and social service agencies across Essex County, focussing on bringing joy, familiar music, and engagement to residents.

Great West Life Neighbourhood Concerts 

 

Great West Life's Neighbourhood Concerts are designed to bring Windsor and Essex County neighbourhoods together in celebration of what is most important to them.  Led by WSO Associate Conductor Peter Wiebe and featuring a local soloist, these hour-long concerts are yours to use to celebrate milestones in your community (such as the 100th anniversary of Holy Trinity Church in 2017), to raise funds for neighbourhood causes (such as the efforts of four Windsor Roman Catholic Parishes to raise money for Syrian refugee families), to entertain (at venues like the Roma Club or the Canadian Transportation Museum and Village), or to simply bring people together (at private parties or at the Salvation Army Men's Shelter, for example).  The sky's the limit - let us know how you would like to bring your neighbourhood together and let us help!  These concerts must occur during the WSO's season, the last week of September through the first week of May.  Limited dates remain for 2016-2017 - please email Faith to inquire.
