WSO Music for Health banner image - quintet at seniors residence. Caesars Windsor Cares Music for Health Program

With the support of Caesars Windsor Cares, the Music for Health program sends quartets and quintets to perform for residents in care facilities and individuals and groups enrolled in day programs at social services agencies in the Windsor and Essex County.  

 

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.  

 

Music for Health performances are one hour in length and cost $200+HST.
