An intimate and dramatic evening in support of cancer research

Music for Mom is a concert production
featuring live flute music and the spoken word

"When I was only 18 years old, I lost my mother to a brutal and unforgiving disease. Nine years have passed since then and I have witnessed again and again the suffering and heartbreak that cancer causes in the lives of others. Music for Mom is about coming together to honour the memory of a loving mother and to rededicate ourselves to the common goal of conquering cancer. It is about what we can achieve through hope and unity."

About Haley Rempel, Artistic Director

Canadian flutist Haley Rempel holds degrees from McGill University (B. Mus.) and the world-renowned Yale University (M. Mus.). She has had the opportunity to study and perform throughout Canada, the United States, and recently completed her first concert tour of Europe. In addition to this, Miss Rempel has performed debut performances with the Musik Barock series and the Agassiz Chamber Music Festival, appearing in recital with harpsichordist Eric Lussier.

Early in 2011, Haley founded Aurelia Productions, a company devoted to creating new ways for audiences to experience classical music.
