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 mu­sichealscon­ or by go­ing to nebo­com­fort­sys­ and choos­ing the Com­mu­nity of Car­ing tab.
