The Inaugural Suite Melody Care Benefit Concert

An Incredible Success!!


When talented young musicians decide to share their gifts with the elderly, a transformative process is set in motion. Suite Melody Care opens up these opportunities.

Joining Grand Prize Winner of the Canadian Music Competition Leslie Ashworth were: violist Eric Nowlin (TSO and New Orford String Quartet), violinist Barry Shiffman (Co-Founder of St. Lawrence Quartet) and pianist Dianne Werner (ARC Ensemble).
