CALGARY ZONE PATIENT & FAMILY CENTRED CARE, INSTRUMENTAL SOCIETY OF CALGARY OUTREACH AND THE ASYLUM FOR ART PRESENT A LIVESTREAM CONCERT SERIES FOR PATIENTS, FAMILIES, AND HEALTHCARE WORKERS
This free virtual concert series is created for and dedicated to hospital patients, their families, and healthcare workers. The intent is to reduce feelings of boredom and loneliness among patients, provide an opportunity for patients and their families to connect over a shared experience, and assist patients, families, and healthcare workers in caring for their mental health during this difficult time. We wish also to extend this music to our seniors in long-term care, and to all who may enjoy. We hope this music can lift your spirits and allow us to feel together at this time.

Currently a faculty member at the Mount Royal University Conservatory, Jiajia is an active performer in the city and has appeared in festivals including Sled Island, Calgary New Music Festival, and The Works.
