12 Souls in Song with Carol Ann Jones
July 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us in the Bliss Room at the Saint Albans Museum on Saturday, July 22 at 7pm for a powerful one (wo)man performance of storytelling and music by Carol Ann Jones. This original performance will detail her experiences performing music as therapy. This benefit to help support Music & Memory is sure to tug at your heartstrings and make your spirit soar.
The Saint Albans Museum is pleased to host local singer/songwriter Carol Ann Jones for a special concert, “The Power of Music: 12 Souls In Song” on Saturday, July 22 in the Bliss Room at 7pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm and tickets are $15 each.
This powerful and intimate performance features music and storytelling based upon Jones’ own experiences offering music therapy for patients in rehabilitation and end-of-life care.
“Ever since my first encounter playing music for a man in his final days, I’ve known that I experienced something that should be shared,” said Jones. “Music has the power to lift a soul and carry it in peace to a warm, happy, even joyful place, even in the midst of death. The rhythm and rhyme of music pulls people together and has the power to heal pain and suffering.”
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Music & Memory, a non-profit whose mission is to bring personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life. Donations of gently-used iPods will also be accepted at the show to help support access to music for patients.
“Music speaks to our own personal history, and listening to a familiar lyric or melody can instantly transport us to another place and time in our own life,” said Alex Lehning, Executive Director of the Saint Albans Museum. “W’re excited to partner with Carol to bring this unique evening of story and song to the Bliss Room.”
The performance is sponsored by Northwestern Counseling & Support Services, Peoples Trust Co, and the Saint Albans Museum.
