Healing, Rhythm & Blues – A Fundraising Event with Musician ANTHONY GOMES

The MGH Foundation is proud to partner with the Music is the Medicine Foundation and Billboard-topping blues musician, Anthony Gomes, to help support the McGill University Health Centre`s (MUHC) award-winning music therapy program.

In July 2016, Gomes took time off from playing the Montreal Jazz Fest to provide a donation of much-needed audio equipment to support the work of the Montreal General Hospital’s renowned Le Groupe MusiArt – a choir, consisting of current and former patients in the MUHC psychiatry program –which performs regularly.

This year, Gomes has added a Montreal stop to his international tour for a show at Café Campus. The evening will be an opportunity to see the fiery musician live in an intimate setting, along with a featured performance by Le Groupe MusiArt, which is sure to give the crowd goosebumps.

Proceeds from your ticket purchase will be used to build a new state-of-the-art recording studio in which patients will write and record their own songs as a form of therapy. This will strongly support the music therapy initiatives at the MUHC.

This is your chance to make a difference for mental health patients in our community through the wonders of music therapy.

Show:

May 25, 2017, 8:00 P.M.

Location:

Café Campus, 57 Prince Arthur Street East

Tickets:

  • Special $40 tickets to the show includes a free CD of Le Groupe MusiArt

** Music is the Medicine was co-founded by Anthony Gomes to provide funding for music therapy initiatives in North America. The Toronto-based Gomes has a deep personal connection to the topic: his mother was treated for mental health issues in Montreal when he was a teenager, and he turned to music to cope with the difficult time his family faced.
