Previous Free Webinars

A Piano Concert

Heidi entertained us with a variety of classical and contemporary pieces. It was a beautiful way to start the week.

Heidi says: “Music expresses emotions when words fail – both for the listener and for the musician.”

Music and medicine are her two greatest passions. She is currently in her fourth year of medical school at the University of Ottawa. In her spare time, she is also a professional pianist and a piano teacher. She started her journey in piano aged 5, studying in the Royal Conservatory of Music and achieving her Associate Diploma in Piano Performance at the age of 16. Since then she has played as a volunteer in various hospitals in Ottawa, performed for over 20+ retirement homes across Ottawa, and worked as a freelance pianist for weddings and events.

Heidi adds “Music has gifted me the unique opportunity to connect with people from all different walks of life and experiences – from death, sickness, grief to marriage, happiness and celebration – and for this, I am so grateful.”

Music with Nigel E. Harris

Singer/songwriter, producer, and music teacher Nigel E. Harris entertained us with well known songs. His business, Musical Wellness, is a catalyst for creating what he calls ‘love made visible’, the positive energy shift visible with people through the power of music. We all experienced this!

Nigel also teaches music online. Before the pandemic he regularly shared the power of music with seniors’ homes, hospitals, and group homes for developmentally disabled individuals. He was the musical director of a singing group for home-based early Alzheimers patients and their caregivers, through the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County.


Music with Dai Bassett

Dai Bassett is a singer, songwriter, emcee, and entertainer. Dai’s many awards, accolades and positive reviews speak to his breadth of talent and ability to delight audiences everywhere. This “Welsh Guy with a Big Smile” has the rare gift of ensuring audiences are always entertained, thanks to his witty personality and ability to break into song, dance, or hilarious comedy. Dai has a special place in his heart for senior citizens and normally performs 300+ shows a year, including in retirement homes.
