6th annual Harmony & Hope: A Concert for Cancer Research
Fri, 7 April 2017, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM ADT
Harmony & Hope features a spectacular mix of pop, rock, jazz, folk, and classical music performed by the Dalhousie Health Professions Chorale and the Bedford Brass Quintet. This year we are proud to welcome guest artist Sam Moon! Hosted by CTV Morning Live‘s Heidi Petracek, Harmony & Hope has been a hit with Halifax audiences, raising thousands for cancer research initiatives in Nova Scotia.
Cape Breton born singer-songwriter Sam Moon has been performing throughout Canada and the USA for over 45 years with hundreds of musicians including Matt Minglewood, Terry Hatty, and Ritchie Oakley. He has made numerous festival appearances and performed at legendary venues like the Misty Moon, and opened for major acts like The Guess Who and The Beach Boys.
In 1982, Sam was the first Maritime artist to break the year-end Top 20 on C100 Radio with the release of his New Moon album. The same year the Halifax Herald chose him as Entertainer of the Year, and he also won Eastern Canada’s Shure Microphone top vocalist award. In 2007 Sam received his first ECMA Award.
