Stories of Care
Episode 7: Musical Gifts
Musical Gifts is the seventh episode of the podcast Stories of Care, a series featuring the clients, caregivers, friends and family of the C.A.R.E. Centre, a recreational centre for adults with severe physical disabilities.
From March 2020 to September 2020, the musical team of Stories of Care created musical gifts for individual C.A.R.E. clients based on their musical interests. In this episode, C.A.R.E. Centre director Olivia Quesnel, musician and Artistic Director Louise Campbell, musicians Tim Brady and Amy Horvey and Innovations in concert director Isak Goldschneider discuss what the gifts meant to the clients and the musicians, particularly in light of increased isolation experienced by many as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. This conversation was recorded in July of 2020 as coronavirus-related restrictions were starting to be lifted.
Music in this podcast is inspired by the numbers for ‘Music’ and ‘Gift’ in Bliss Communication and the musical preferences of the C.A.R.E. clients, which ranges from Big Band to Metallica:
