Health & Wellness
What a joy to have select players of the K-W Symphony visit Winston Park. Without exception, each player was a virtuoso performer. . .We always went back to our room refreshed and inspired.
— Margaret and Lewis Webster, Winston Park residents
The Kitchener- Waterloo Symphony launched the Health & Wellness Program in December 2014. This is a long-term program working in partnership with the healthcare community, linking music with existing healthcare programs. We offer the services of the Orchestra and individual musicians for recreation and research purposes, without duplicating the excellent work currently performed by music therapists and other music-related specialists.
In partnership with Winston Park Retirement Residence
KWS musicians provided a series of mini concerts and encouraged seniors to participate in beneficial interactive My First Music Lesson sessions. Presentations by KWS musicians included solo performances, engaging informative lectures, demonstrations of their instruments and talks about musical life.
KWS also partnered with Clair Hills Retirement Residence to bring music to local hospitals including the Grand River Hospital, Grand River Regional Cancer Centre, Cambridge Memorial Hospital as well as Rockway Centre, Adult Recreation Centre in Waterloo and Wing 404 RCAFA Rotary Adult Centre.
