Join Paul Cardall March 21 for the Music Heals Concert
To say acclaimed pianist and composer Paul Cardall understands the healing power of music would be an understatement. Born with a congenital heart defect, Cardall had only one functioning ventricle until he received a heart transplant as an adult.
Throughout his life, Paul has used the power of music to heal the hearts and souls of thousands with his concerts and speeches. Nebo Comfort Systems President Robert Moore said, “It is impossible to come away from a Paul Cardall concert without feeling better about the world and all that is beautiful in it.”
The Nebo Comfort Systems Community of Caring is proud and honored to have Paul joining them on Saturday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in the Salem Hills High School Auditorium for the Music Heals Concert and as a judge in the Music Heals High School Piano Composition Contest.
With an estimated 10,000 new cases of cancer each year, few families escape the pain of cancer. Those families are why Nebo Comfort Systems partners with the Relay For Life through their Community of Caring Program to present the Music Heals Concert.
“We are one of those families touched by cancer,” said Robert. “We lost my father to esophageal cancer in 2009. Paul’s music truly helped heal my heart and our family after loosing Dad.”
“Dick was the heart of our family. We’ve tried to turn our grief into fuel to drive us forward in our efforts,” said Lorene Moore, director of the Nebo Comfort Systems Community of Caring Program. “It’s so fitting to have Paul participating with us in this concert.”
Sharing that love and gratitude is what the Music Heals High School Piano Composition Contest is also about.
High school students from throughout Nebo School District are invited to participate in the Music Heals Piano Composition Contest by submitting a recording of an original piece. The finalists will perform the evening of March 21 with Cardall and the audience selecting the winner of a recording session with him at his studio.
Last year’s finalists totally blew Cardall away with their talent. In fact, he was so impressed he was unable to decide on a winner when the audience voting was tied, so instead he invited all three of them.
You can be a part of this evening of music, healing and celebration of life. Tickets for the concert are $5. Purchase your tickets and find the rules and entry form for the contest at musichealsconcert.org or by going to nebocomfortsystems.com and choosing the Community of Caring tab.
