Learn more about the mission of La SAMS

Group concerts (face-to-face)

Our beloved concerts are offered in CHSLDs, seniors' residences, rehabilitation centres, mental health institutes and in living environments for women in difficulty. Offered by our attentive artists, in classical, jazz and world music, these concerts offer all the benefits of music in 45 minutes. Contact us to find out more!

 

Chamber Concerts (face-to-face)

For residents who are unable to move about in the common areas or in 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

Soon to be back, as soon as the warm weather arrives! The professional musicians of La SAMS will visit our seniors and patients with festive outdoor concerts.

 

La SAMS live!

For the past few months, every week, La SAMS has offered its audience three weekly live appointments on Zoom with artists from Montreal and Quebec City: virtual musical encounters in complete authenticity, from their homes, far from current concerns. More than 18 concerts were offered free of charge by 15 solo, duo and trio groups of classical and jazz music. For those who like to sing, Thursdays were reserved for the SAM'Chante activity with singer and pianist Kristin Hoff. The live concerts will surely be back next fall, so stay tuned by registering here if you haven't already done so.

 

La SAMS.tv

Online concerts recorded under professional conditions with an emphasis on the human side. These concerts, created especially for you, are now available on a subscription basis for streaming.

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.

 

SAM'CHANTE Choir

Since January 2020, two choirs for people with Alzheimer's (in Montreal) and aphasia (in Laval) are active. In partnership with the IUGM (Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal), the Association AVC-Laval and the Alzheimer Society of Laval, these very special choirs are aimed at people for whom singing is not only a leisure activity, but a source of increased health and well-being.

 

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!

All our musical activities respect the sanitary measures put in place by the Quebec government.
