MUSIC. HEALTH. WELLNESS. Click here to find out more about La SAMS 's mission!

Group concerts

Our beloved concerts are offered in CHSLDs, seniors' residences, rehabilitation centers, mental health institutes and in living environments for women in difficulty. Offered by our caring artists, in classical, jazz and world music, these concerts offer all the benefits of music in 45 minutes.

Chamber Concerts

This activity is designed for residents who are unable to move about in the common areas or in the hospices. Our artists respectfully visit patients in their rooms, offering them a few minutes of musical escape. These bedside concerts are also offered in hospitals, especially for oncology and dialysis patients.

Summer outdoor concerts

As soon as the warm weather arrives, La SAMS 's professional musicians visit seniors and patients, presenting festive concerts in the courtyards or gardens of their establishments. This series of outdoor concerts is offered to CHSLDs, seniors' residences, specialized nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and HLMs in less privileged neighborhoods.

La SAMS live

Every week during the winter months, La SAMS offers its audience weekly live appointments on Zoom with artists from the four corners of Quebec: authentic virtual musical encounters in their own homes, far from the daily grind. For those who love to sing, workshops are reserved for the SAM'Chante activity with singer and pianist Kristin Hoff. 30 concerts will be programmed this winter, starting in January 2024, by solo, duo and trio musicians of classical, jazz and world music. It's a free event! Sign up if you haven't already.

SAM'CHANTE Choir

A pilot project for choirs for people with Alzheimer's (in Montreal) and aphasia (in Laval) has been launched. In partnership with the Centre AVC-Aphasie Laval and the IUGM (Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal), these very special choirs are aimed at people for whom singing is not just a hobby, but a source of increased health and well-being.

A call from the heart

A private call, with music, to break the isolation and let the positive vibes resonate well beyond this 100% personalised meeting. Offer for a special occasion, a birthday or just to let them know you're thinking of them. One of our artists will dedicate one or two songs to them and take the time to have a little chat. It is also possible to offer these calls on a regular basis to a loved one.

Vaccination centre concerts

Mandated by the Ministry of Health and Social Services and the Ministry of Culture and Communications, La SAMS and its artists performed in vaccination centres across Quebec to the delight of users and staff. See this CBC report!
