A splendid time is guaranteed for all. Oh. Here are some reasons you might consider attending, brought to you from FLCE co-founder, Michael Salmirs:

"As we approach the beginning of our 23rd season, we are reflecting on our evolving audience. We began performing as a group in 1990, and now we’re playing for another generation of music enthusiasts. Many of today’s concert goers were children and young adults who started attending our concerts back then, many of them were our own students. Since all of us are actively involved in musical education, it is wonderful to see first hand how music is transforming people’s lives.

A recent study at Northwestern University showed that early musical training greatly improves auditory skills as well as attention and memory skills, thereby enhancing a person’s learning ability and success in life. However the benefits don’t stop there: Later in life, persons struggling with hearing loss will do better understanding language in a noisy environment if they have kept up their musical activities. Through music training their central auditory processing skills will have been preserved, so that they are better able to understand speech against a noisy background.So there you have it, music is just what the doctor ordered, which is something we knew all along.Science aside, our new season promises great pleasure and fulfilment as we welcome you all to a variety of wonderful music."
