Concerts in Care Ontario provides live professional music for our senior audiences living in long-term and memory care, assisted, and independent living facilities. We offer classical, jazz, American Songbook, and occasional special event ensembles from solos to quartets. We curate a series of concerts over a 12-month period, starting with a minimum of four concerts, with no upper limit. This way the seniors hear a variety of the best professional musicians in each genre, or from their preferred styles.
Narrative and connection with audiences is a huge part of our mandate. We understand that music is a socializing opportunity. So Concerts in Care performances belong to the residents, not to the musicians. Our performers tell stories, describe the music, and spend time after the concert visiting with their audience members. We operate in the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa, Sudbury, and London, partnering with the local professional symphonies, top freelancers, and festivals to ensure best quality performances for our aging populations. Fees are on a sliding scale, designed as much as possible to suit the budget of each facility.
