The Mysterious Barricades Concert Society hosts a series of 15 one-hour concerts across Canada between September 5th and September 14th to mark World Suicide Awareness Week. This concert series comprises of performances by some of Canada’s finest musicians and includes genres of classical, choral, jazz, and more.
People touched by suicide, mental health professionals, community figures, politicians, and ordinary Canadians stand up on this day to speak about mental health and suicide in hopes of reducing stigma and providing support.
Imagine a day when the barricades erected around the subjects of suicide and mental illness start to come down.
Imagine a day when hundreds of Canada’s finest musicians across the country join together to offer music of healing and hope to those in jeopardy, and to those left behind.
Imagine a day when even one life might be saved as a result.
Imagine you, joining with us, to let everyone know their lives truly matter.
All concerts are free to attend. However, to ensure your place at the concert, we encourage you to reserve a free ticket in advance.
