Telluride Jazz Festival and Hospice: A Musical Partnership for Care
WASHINGTON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 36th Annual Telluride Jazz Festival and National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization are pleased to announce the first "Special Musical Partnership for Care." The partnership joins two nonprofits that have different missions, but are deeply connected by a passion to improve people's lives. NHPCO is dedicated to providing the best care at the end of human life and the Telluride Society for Jazz strives to educate children while producing the world-famous annual festival.
"Over the summer and throughout the fall we are partnering with music festivals across genres and the country to increase information and public awareness on the benefits of hospice. We are working together with key music festivals, organizations and top musicians to bring the power of music, hospice and palliative care to veterans, children and their families," said Don Schumacher, CEO and President, NHPCO. NHPCO kicks off a national tour later this week reaching over 2 million people with vital information.
For many years, hospices have used music as a powerful tool to bring comfort and hope to those they care for. As Telluride Jazz is an incredible celebration of all that is found at the heart of jazz, hospice is really a celebration of life and about living as fully as possible – to the max.
"We cannot think of a better fit. There are few organizations in the world that do as good a job at providing exceptional care as hospice and we will be doing everything we can to help them increase awareness and succeed in their mission for years to come," says Telluride Society for Jazz Executive Director Paul Machado.
The Telluride Jazz Festival welcomes 4,000 attendees from around the world to the quaint Colorado town on August 3-5, 2012. NHPCO will be on site to help educate the music fans about their national network of care facilities and in-home services.
