Soup for the Soul Day

Dates: October 5, 12, 19, 26

Soup for the Soul is an annual fundraising event for the Arts in Healing program at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital. Research indicates that creative therapies shorten hospital stays, lessen stress and anxiety, reduce the need for pain management and produce better outcomes in patients. Arts in Healing integrates art therapies into a patient's stay, providing a crucial element in the healing process-  especially for children. Every Wednesday in October (Oct 5,12, 19, 26) is "Soup for the Soul Day" where you can visit local participating restaurants and enjoy a bowl of soup - the restaurant will then donate a portion of their soup sales back to Providence Arts in Healing. For a complete listing of participating restaurants, please visit their website in the link provided.

Explore the influence of geography on the creative vision of composers from the far north. Lush, romantic, and filled with dazzling piano effects, Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto is a brilliant setting of the tune made famous by Frank Sinatra's "Full Moon and Empty Arts." Sibelius wrote his transcendent swan theme for Symphony No. 5 after sighting 16 swans, which he called "One of my greatest experiences!" Dreamland paints a gorgeous, intriguing musical landscape.
