4th ANNUAL MUSICIANS CARE FOR KIDS BENEFIT CONCERT
On Wednesday February 6, 2013, the 4th Annual Musicians Care for Kids Benefit Concert returns to the EPCOR CENTRE’s Jack Singer Concert Hall.
The highly talented and energetic Russell Broom is back to join us again this year as our host for the night to accompany Canadian favourites Reuben Bullock, Russell Broom, David Gogo, Andrea House, Gordie Johnson, and Romi Mayes taking turns sharing their stories, motivations and inspirations behind some of their finest songs. Join these ear pleasing musicians as they gather for an intimate and informal exposure of their work for one night only.
Jeff Parry Promotions started Musicians Care for Kids with support from the Calgary Entrepreneurs Organization in 2010. Over the past three years the event has raised over $60,000 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary. This will mark the second year that 100% of the net proceeds will go to the Avenue 15 program. This program provides homeless and runaway youth ages 12 to 17 with temporary shelter and basic needs, as well as comprehensive support system to assist them in reuniting with their families or find alternative living arrangements. A great night to celebrate Canadian music to support the children of Calgary!
On behalf of Jeff Parry Promotions, Annerin Productions and the Calgary Entrepreneurs Organization we also appreciate any donation you are able to offer to Musicians Care for Kids. For fund/designation, please choose ‘Musicians Care for Kids’

EPCOR CENTRE's Jack Singer Concert Hall is described as one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America.
As the home of Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and EPCOR CENTRE's BD&P World Music Series, audiences are treated to some of the world's finest musical events. Through rentals to outside promoters and the community, the Jack Singer hosts a wide variety of performances year-round.
Special features incorporated into the hall design allow it to host a spectrum of entertainment, with a stage measuring up to 86' wide and nearly 38' deep. Suspended high above the stage is an 185,000-pound (90-ton) laminated sprucewood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix.
In August 2004, the Jack Singer Concert Hall was upgraded with a new million dollar sound system, including a state-of-the-art hearing assistance system. The main level of the concert hall is fully wheelchair accessible with flexible seating options.
