Concerts in Care’s Artistic Goals

Perform with high musical standards

CiC engages with professional musicians with the experience and expertise to deliver a top-quality concert for audiences.

Affinity for the Seniors' Milieu

Our performers are not only passionate about their music, but they are also compassionate to the needs and sensitivities of our unique audiences.

Willingness for Creative Programming

Performers must be willing to create programming that combines high-quality music and performance with variety and narrative for their audience.

Jeanne Lamon, renowned as the Artistic Director of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra for over 33 years, is the Artistic Director for Concerts in Care.

Standards for performers and repertoire in the CiC program are very high. Not only are these musicians at the top of their professional fields, but they also have a respect for an affinity with the elderly and vulnerable.

Concerts in Care performers are often chosen from major performing arts organizations and they are paid for their work. For programming interest and to keep costs within manageable parameters, CiC presents a mixture of solos, duos, trios, and quartets in each facility.

Our current associate partners include the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Opera Atelier, Ottawa Chamberfest, Toronto Summer Music Festival, Glenn Gould School, University of Ottawa, and Sudbury Symphony Orchestra.
