Description:

Concerts in Care Ontario offers a sharp, congenial communicator and contributor the opportunity to support the well-being and joy of seniors across Ontario. Our Board of Directors is searching for a director to join our team who may connect with communities that we serve, but do not yet represent properly.

The scope of Board duties includes working together to
  • Develop strategic objectives, priorities, and goals
  • Raise funds to support our concerts, both live and virtual
  • Increase the scope of our circles and communities
  • Enlarge our circle of awareness among our various communities
WHO WE ARE: Since 2006, the Concerts in Care program has presented programming that makes a significant impact in a range of seniors’ care communities across Ontario. Anchored at the intersection of artistic excellence and research about music and the brain, we curate series of turnkey concerts in seniors’ facilities, performed by top-calibre professional musicians.

The Covid-19 pandemic has provided us the opportunity to translate our musical services from live, in-person concerts into digital musical content and outside concerts that continue to combine passion and compassion to our high standards.
  • Interactive Zoom Concerts and Conversations  
  • Outside live concerts
  • 30-minute up-close-and-personal virtual concerts
Since 2011,  CiC Ontario has presented more than 1800 concerts, touching 70,000 seniors' audience members, and providing more than 3,000 performer engagements. That represents a lot of smiles!  With our new offerings, we are reaching facilities in smaller communities that we may never have reached because of distance and lack of professional local musicians.
