Aurora and Evan Freeman will be performing at The Yoga Room on Northwest Boulevard on Friday, April 26.

“Immersive Musica Journey” comes to Creston

Home Shall Be Here is a response to the suicides by two friends of Calgary musicians Elly Aurora and Evan Freeman.

Now touring throughout BC, Aurora and Freeman invite people to “Delve into meditative soundscapes and rhythms that connect you to the ‘home’ of your body, community, and planet.” They will perform at The Yoga Room on Northwest Boulevard on Friday, April 26 at 7 pm.

Speaking to the Advance by telephone last week, Freeman said that their friends were close musical collaborators, talented multi-instrumentalists and community leaders.

“Losing them affected us deeply and fragmented our artistic community,” he said. “It also woke us up to the shocking statistics of depression, anxiety, and suicide locally and globally.”

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), mental illness directly or indirectly affects all Canadians at some point. As professional musicians, creative expression has been a critical way of maintaining our own mental health. “Our most honest, heartfelt response to tragic loss and widespread mental illness is to help others by sharing our music, messages of hope and creative resources through concerts and workshops,” Freeman said.

Tickets for The Home Shall Be Here project can be purchased online by going to https://www.homeshallbehere.com/ and clicking on the link, or at the door on the evening of the performance.

“Come as you are, be a part of a shared experience, leave inspired and connected,” Freeman said.
