Rossland musician spotlights local hospice with classical concert

To raise awareness for National Hospice Month in May and to support all the work that the Greater Trail Hospice Society and its volunteers do for individuals and families in the area, classical music lovers are ready to enjoy a fundraising concert in downtown Trail with accomplished local musician Carolyn Cameron.

The session for Bach, Mozart and Mussorgsky aficionados will take place on Sunday, May 15 from 2-3:15 p.m. at Downtown Trail United Church. Donations to the Greater Trail Hospice Society are welcome, but not required.

“This concert is part of our 35th anniversary celebrations and will really help us raise awareness of our work in what is an important month for Hospices in the region. We hope many people will join us for a great afternoon of music, have fun and learn more about us and what we do,” says Board Chair Brenda Hooper.

Drawing clear parallels to a supporter’s points of contact with Hospice, it’s only fitting that the program includes a composition that tells a story, in addition to Bach and Mozart pieces written after the loss of a loved one. The same is true with Hospice – everyone will have their own story, perspective and journey, but a positive outcome can be achieved even at the end of life.

These volunteers have halos around them and every fundraising gig I’ve played for them has been great – a really positive experience for everyone involved,” says Carolyn, who is no stranger to performing. concerts.
