Windsor Symphony Orchestra Announces Music for Health Support from Caesars Windsor Cares

Windsor, ONThe Windsor Symphony Orchestra announces a donation of $10,000 from Caesars Windsor Cares in support of their Music for Health program.

The Music for Health program brings a WSO Quartet to long-term care facilities, retirement homes, hospitals and more to support the health and wellness of homebound seniors. This program is based upon the growing body of evidence that shows the positive impact music has on mental, emotional, and even physical health. Residents can request songs that have special meaning for them and share memories or stories that are elicited by the music.

Having the residents choose the music from a list engages them in the concert at a higher level, even stimulates conversations about the music and residents’ memories they have with music.”

Becky Ng, WSO Education and Outreach Manager.

Caesars Windsor is proud to be a long-time supporter of the creative spirit of our region. We are excited to be a partner with Windsor Symphony Orchestra in maintaining our culturally rich city with a donation to their Music for Health program.”
Kevin Laforet, President, Caesars Windsor.

The WSO announced this support with a Media Event at Chartwell Royal Marquis Retirement Residence on March 27, 2024 at 10am. Media were welcome to record the announcement, cheque presentation, Music for Health concert, and engage in a media scrum.
