Five hundred and seven concerts for audiences in care in April and May, 2012 This document records BMO National Concerts in Care Spring Festival, a cross-Canada program of 507 forty-five minute concerts performed by 324 professional musicians in April and May 2012, reaching an audience of more than 20,000 people in care. The concerts were presented by Health Arts societies and Société pour les arts en milieux de santé with the generous assistance of BMO Financial Group. First-class professional musicians are at the core of the societiesʼ purpose, which is to bring high quality live music to people isolated in care. We celebrate with gratitude the superb performances of the musicians that realized this unique, nation-wide Festival. In 2012 they, and other fine performers, will bring more than 1,600 concerts to our audiences in care across Canada. There follows a complete list of the BMO National Concerts in Care Spring Festival concerts. The response of the audience, mainly frail elders, speaks of their joy and engagement in the music.

BMO National Concerts in Care Spring Festival was accomplished because a great many people and organizations have contributed to and continue to advance and sustain the development of Health Arts societies and Société pour les arts en milieux de santé. They are leaders and staff in health services and residential homes, the musicians of course, the individuals, foundations, businesses and government agencies that support the societies materially, and the staff and volunteers who build and run them. We dedicate this project to all of them, and to BMO Financial Group, which has made a significant three-year contribution to all Health Arts societies and Société pour les arts en milieux de santé.

Cinq cent sept concerts offerts aux résidents de centres de soins en avril et mai 2012 Ce document contient la liste des 507 concerts de quarante-cinq minutes chacun donnés par 324 musiciens professionnels lors du Festival national du printemps musical BMO, en avril et mai 2012, auprès de plus de 20 000 résidents de centres de soins à travers le Canada. Ces concerts ont été présentés par les Health Arts societies et la Société pour les arts en milieux de santé avec le soutien du groupe financier BMO. Afin d’offrir aux personnes isolées dans ces centres des prestations musicales du plus haut niveau, nos sociétés font appel à des musiciens professionnels de tout premier ordre. C’est à ces musiciens et à ceux qui se joindront à eux que nous devons notre reconnaissance pour ce festival pan-canadien unique et pour les 1 600 concerts que nos sociétés vont offrir en 2012. Vous trouverez ci-dessous la liste complète des concerts du Festival national du printemps musical BMO. Les réactions du public, constitué en grande partie d’aînés en perte d’autonomie, témoignent du plaisir et de la stimulation que leur procure la musique. Le succès du Festival national du printemps musical BMO a été rendu possible grâce aux nombreuses personnes et organisations qui ont contribué à la croissance et à la vitalité des Health Arts societies et de la Société pour les arts en milieux de santé. Notre reconnaissance va aux administrateurs et au personnel des services hospitaliers et des centres de soins, aux musiciens bien évidemment, aux individus, aux fondations, aux entreprises et aux agences gouvernementales qui apportent leur soutien financier, à notre personnel dévoué et à nos précieux bénévoles. C’est à tous ces gens que ce document veut rendre hommage, ainsi qu’au groupe financier BMO qui a généreusement octroyé une subvention de trois ans aux Health Arts societies et à la Société pour les arts en milieux de santé.

I wanted to let you know that the concerts were a huge success! The performers were absolutely terrific and you could tell from the fun they were having amongst themselves and with the audience that music is their true passion. The music was fantastic and they played a little bit of everything. Watching the residents’ reaction to the music was very moving – some were conducting, some were smiling, some were tapping along and a few even sang…Thanks again for the fantastic musical experience you have provided for residents of our facilities.

If I had to chose one word to sum up the experience, it’s OUTSTANDING. The two artists were not only very talented, but amazing in engaging the audience. Both spoke with the audience about the songs. They were so respectful and so joyful. Afterwards I heard so many comments from staff about how upbeat it was. And many were in awe of how engaged the residents were – some sang along, some tapped toes, some who normally aren’t able to sit still for a few minutes, sat through the entire forty-five minute concert.

Ce concert les a fait voyager. La chanteuse a une voix magnifique et la pianiste a beaucoup de talent. Très bon concert! Les résidents ont adoré et certains employés souhaitaient que le concert se prolonge. Un résident très atteint de troubles cognitifs a même chantonné un air du concert. Québec

We have had a housekeeper tell us that she makes sure she is cleaning the unit when the Health Arts concerts are on so that she, too, can enjoy the music! Patricia held hands with one resident while she was singing or talking to him. He has not stopped talking about that since. This latter really shows, to my mind, the impact performers can have on their audience when they are personable and compassionate with the residents. Québec

Last week we had the pleasure of meeting a quartet of musicians from the National Arts Centre. I was just entranced by such a display of musicality, their obvious love of music, and their pleasure in sharing their joy in ensemble playing. Hearing these talented and skilled string players playing lovely instruments was an unforgettable experience – I was thrilled!! They started with a movement from Handel’s Water Music, later played some JS Bach, whom I adore. Then they played Salut d’amour by Edward Elgar and then an arrangement of a Gershwin song. I have spent many hours reliving this experience and will never forget!
