Bruyère Takes Centre Stage With Broadway Across Canada

as Emond Harden presents Broadway for Bruyère THE SOUND OF MUSIC Gala

The Hills Are Alive…! A brand new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, directed by three-time Tony Award® winning Director Jack O’Brien, is coming to the National Arts Centre. Emond Harden presents Broadway for Bruyère The Sound of Music gala evening filled with all our ‘Favorite Things’ on
April 14, 2016.


Inspired by our founder, Mother Élisabeth Bruyère, Bruyère is a Catholic health care organization whose foundation has always been to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in our community through compassionate care.  Funds raised will fuel compassionate patient care, research and teaching at Bruyère in key priority areas of brain health, integrated seniors health and rehabilitation. 


The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award® winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss” and of course, the title song.

 Unique elements at the Emond Harden Broadway for Bruyère The Sound of Music gala include a VIP pre-show party at Performance Court with CTV Ottawa’s Leanne Cusack and Matt Skube as masters of ceremony followed by an after-show party at the National Arts Centre complete with live band and a mix and mingle with The Sound of Music cast.


 With the successful launch of Broadway for Bruyère’s inaugural Broadway Across Canada partnership event in 2015 with Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, several sponsors have returned to support Bruyère’s research initiatives including: presenting sponsor Emond Harden, Morguard, Bell Media, Metroland Media, Andre Mickovitch – Assante Wealth Management, Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, McGill Buckley, Star Motors of Ottawa, Daniel C.
