Experience the Art of Music at its best with the masterpieces of Tchaikovsky!

The Art of Life Community Health Centre: Charity Concert 
Marking the 175th Birth Anniversary of Tchaikovsky, November 14, 2015


The Art of Life invites you to experience the Art of Music at its best with the masterpieces of Tchaikovsky!

Awakening Your Heart with the Art of Music: A Tchaikovsky Charity Concert
Three talented musicians: Rena Amiralieva, Rufat Amiraliev and Janusz Borowiec, will perform the masterpieces of Tchaikovsky on Saturday, November 14th at 7pm.


The Art of Life Community Health Centre is an non-profit organization aiming to further develop their Centre's music programs for kids.

In this day and age, video games, television and the internet are dominating society's, specifically our kids' perceptions and ideals.

One of the biggest streams of negative influences on society is through today's music. Popular topics include sex, drugs and alcohol. Music has a great effect on a person. Even philosophers from thousands of years ago such as Plato, Aristotle and Socrates spoke of this. Aristotle says in this quote how music has an effect on the negative and positive emotional states of a person:

"Music directly imitates the passions or states of the soul...when one listens to music that imitates a certain passion, he becomes imbued with the same passion; and if over a long time he habitually listens to music that rouses ignoble passions, his whole character will be shaped to an ignoble form."


Even with today's research especially in the effects of music therapy, why are schools not giving enough funding for their musical curriculum?  Kids are therefore only influenced by the music they hear on the radio.

Our goal is to spread awareness of other kinds of music, specifically the Classical genre. The effects of Classical music on the brain in general are phenomenally positive. A simple internet search will give us literally millions of results that on this topic. Influences such as memory, concentration and productivity are listed often.

We are left with a decision to educate our kids and ourselves in a genre with the ability to impact us positively in our everyday activities, or one that restricts us.

Help support our vision.

By attending our charity concert you will be helping!

The proceeds of ticket sales and any additional donations will be directly given to The Art of Life Community Health Centre to support the development of music programs for kids.

This is a "Charity Concert Marking the 175th Birth Anniversary of Tchaikovsky", one of the most influential composers of the Classical genre. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is a 19th century Russian composer. Some of the music he is most famous for include his ballets such as The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.

The concert is called "Awakening your Heart with the Art of Music". It will take place on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 7 pm in the Lawrence Park Community Church.

Tickets Price: General admission: $25; Students: $10; Children under 12: FREE

We hope you bring your friends and family and not only help to create widely accessible art-based programs for younger generations, but hopefully develop a new or growing interest for classical music.

About the Concert

"Awakening your Heart with the Art of Music"

Our concert is dedicated to the 175th anniversary of the birth of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsy, one of the most beloved and popular composers of all time. He is famous for The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker. His music always had great appeal to the general public. Compositions full of tuneful, open-hearted melodies, impressive harmonies, and colourful, picturesque orchestration, all evoke a profound emotional response from audience of all ages.

Tchaikovsy began to improvise on the piano at the tender age of 5. It seemed to him that he began to compose the minute he heard music for the first time. Being so young, Tchaikovsky simply considered music a way of expression and communication. His early compositions revealed everything that occupied the young composer's mind, which words could not describe. His first works were about youthful aspirations and hopes, pains of loss and suffering, happiness, joy and love.

With age, the composer had no doubt that "music is indeed the most beautiful of all Heaven's gifts to humanity". Music fills the gaps in communication, teaches compassion, acceptance and understanding of each other. Tchaikovsky's deep sensitivity and sincerity saturated his music, producing lush melodies that have enamored listeners for almost two centuries. His melodies touched listeners' hearts and hummed in their heads.

Tchaikovsky's final Symphony, is not only an expression of fully uncovered talent, highest expertise in melody, orchestration, and other forms of expression; in all sincerity, Tchaikovsky gave us his heart, and there is not a person in the world whose heart strings would not resonate and echo in return.

His music, being genuine, helps us to open our hearts and hear the sounds of the Universe through the background noise of our civilization and feel Love elevating our practical minds, that’s why it has enchanted listeners all over the world for almost 200 years.

This charity concert is dedicated to children and youth in an aspiration to create widely accessible art-based programs for younger generations, helping them develop the gift of creativity.

Performer Biographies:

Pianist, Rena Amiralieva, and violinist, Rufat Amiraliev, were born-as sister and brother-into an acclaimed musical family in Baku, Azerbaijan. Their mother was their first, very exacting, music teacher and they were seasoned performers by the age of ten. Garnering academic accolades and winning prestigious prizes in Russia and Europe, they were well known in their native country before immigrating to Canada some twenty years ago. Since then these accomplished artists have delighted Ontario summer festival audiences with their “polished and astonishingly brilliant playing” while their solo and ensemble work and unique repertoire have won the hearts of discerning Toronto and Ottawa audiences. The inspired collaboration of two outstanding musicians is guaranteed to attune the souls of listeners to burgeoning, life giving forces of inspiration that rejoice the audience.

Rena started to take piano lessons at the age of three. After completing Baku Central Music School for gifted children, in 1980 Rena continued her study at Tchaikovsky’s State Conservatory (Moscow, Russia) and took lessons from Yakov Milstein (second generation students of Franz List). She graduated from Moscow State Conservatory with a master degree in 1984. Among her teachers were Boris Bekhterev and Vladimir Krainev (winner of 1stprize of Tchaikovsky’s International Competition in 1970). Rena completed her PhD in 1989. Rena’s appearances included the most prestigious concert halls in the former Soviet Union, including White Hall, Rachmaninov Hall and Bolshoy Hall of Conservatory in Moscow. She also appeared on television and radio.

Rufat started violin lessons at the age of seven under guidance of Yefim Barshtak and Gayane Pogosova. In 1981, Rufat won first prize in the category of solo violin performance in the republic Music Competition. Rufat took lessons from professor of Moscow State Conservatory Igor Bezrodny. These accomplished artists have delighted audiences with their “polished and astonishingly brilliant playing”

Janusz Borowiec, cellist, graduated from the Frederic Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw and from the University of Toronto. He performed in Europe with the Polish Radio and TV Chamber Orchestra and with Orquesta Sinfonica de Mineria in Mexico City. In Canada, he has been the principal cellist of Toronto Sinfonietta, Peterborough Symphony Orchestra, the Sacred Music Society, and Opera Bel Canto. As a soloist, he has performed with the Toronto Sinfonietta, Peterborough Symphony Orchestra, Trinity Chamber Ensemble, and Orchestra da Camera Toronto. Moreover, he performs regularly in chamber ensembles, has participated in several music festivals in Ontario, and was heard on the CBC.

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in A minor, Op. 50 (1882);

Dear friends!


Lately we try to be active and productive, and already have planned another meet-up for you!

The other reason though is that we want to see you again, especially those of you who couldn’t make it to our last meet-up session on cardiac exercises.

This time, we will host a lecture about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other musculoskeletal problems.

For those of you, who work at the computer for the majority of the day and experience musculoskeletal issues, this lecture would be very beneficial. 

It will be facilitated by our lovely physiotherapist Ali Aminlari, whom some of you had a pleasure meeting during our previous meet-ups.

This lecture will cover:

1) Musculoskeletal problems and repetitive stress injuries,
2) Headaches and fatigue: practical tips to prevention and cure (very important!),

AND

3) Overview of modern and innovative physiotherapy devices.

I hope to see you all there!

Also, I will be more than happy to share my success story on curing carpel tunnel syndrome only after 10 sessions of physiotherapy.

Take care!
