Singing with Parkinson’s Fundraising Event

Aug 18th, 2015

Please join us on Friday September 11th, 2015 from 7:00-9:30p.m in the beautiful Sears Atrium at Ryerson University for an evening of fantastic entertainment. There will be refreshments, door prizes, a silent auction, performances by the talented musicians who lead the choir, and much more. However, perhaps the biggest highlight of the evening is the performance of a medley of songs by the choir themselves.

In June this year, something very special was created. Borne of some novel research findings by folks at Ryerson University, a choir was set up exclusively for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their loved ones. Now, through the heritage doors of one of the most renowned music schools in the world, an array of beautiful voices can be heard as a group of individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease gather at the Royal Conservatory of Music to sings songs that will help them strengthen their voices and facial expressiveness. The 13-week choir is due to end in early September, but its popularity and impact on the Parkinson’s community has left everyone involved wanting more. As a result, we have banded together to organize this fundraising event to keep the choir going, and to make it accessible to others in the Parkinson’s community.
