Comments 20 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s gala season in Vancouver and one of the most unique events out there is the Strike a Chord benefit for Music Heals. This special evening is filled with music (of course) and it benefits music therapy programs in our region.

MusicHealsGala2015What: Strike a Chord Benefit for Music Heals
Date: Thursday, October 22, 2015
Time: From 7:00pm to 2:00am
Where: The Imperial (319 Main Street)
Tickets: Available online now. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for a portion of the ticket price.

Strike a Chord promises a memorable evening of entertainment and special guests, fantastic food, drinks and dancing.

Last year, with performers that included Serena Ryder, Grammy winner Chin Injeti, The Matinee, and The Boom Booms, Strike A Chord raised $50,000 for local music therapy programs.

Music Heals raises money and awareness for music therapy. They have donated $250,000 to music therapy programs across Canada, with a particular focus on BC, in just their first two years in operation. These programs serve children, seniors, palliative care, burn units, autism, bereavement, dementia, rehabilitation, and more.

    Music makes me forget about my troubles and my pains and makes me feel relaxed, hopeful, rejuvenated and alive. Music is more powerful and healing than people ever could imagine. This is a most beautiful cause.

    Music makes me feel alive, transported with each note to a time and place associated with each song…it makes me sing and dance, laugh and cry. Music makes me human.

    Music makes me feel alive. Music makes me happy, gives me more energy, inspires me, and makes me forget when I am in pain or feeling down. Music makes me sing and music makes me sway and dance.

    “Music makes me soar like an untethered eagle into the crystal-bluest of skies,and encompass the entire Earth.Then it shoots me into the farthest reaches of the cosmos where all the colors of ‘yet to be seen’ Nebulae burst forth, forming intergalactic rainbows in their midst!(And “that’s” just the ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album, alone.):oO Each new song, every new sound, opens it’s own new dimension in my soul, guiding it, gliding it; along brand new, equally amazing journeys; where the constraints of any vehicle are completely foreign to me, and the only things required: are the notes & my imagination. Music makes me whole once more.”
