Two years ago, John Mann, the lead singer of Spirit of the West, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. As a result, the Spirit of John was created. This music project aims at bringing awareness to a disease that can affect anyone, regardless of sex, race, religion, or socio-economic background.
The Alzheimer Society of Toronto, along with sponsors TD Canada and Slaight Music, present a “night of memorable live music” at the Horseshoe Tavern with performances by John Mann, Jim Cuddy, Molly Johnson, Royal Wood, Tom Wilson, and many more.
Tickets to this event are $40 (plus service charges) and can be purchased at alz.to/concert. All proceeds go to supporting the Alzheimer Society’s Music Project which provides iPods and personalized playlists for Toronto residents living with dementia.
Music has the ability to help people with dementia and Alzheimer’s. It can reduce stress, bring joy, and help stimulate memories. the Alzheimer Society’s music project aims to improve the quality of life for people living with this disease. It’s sure to be a memorable night and is for a great cause.
