"LEGENDS AND LEGACIES benefit concert supporting suicide prevention and mental health... the most worthy of causes! WOW!! What an evening!!!! Shari Chaskin and Peter LaMarr put on the most incredible performances!!!
Shari’s performance was awe-inspiring as she hit angel-worthy notes even after being sick all week!! Peter LaMarr knocked it out of the park!! His Stevie Wonder was amazing!! The music was beyond magnificent! All 70’s, 80’s to current favorites with the best band, musical director Jon Day and back up singing accompaniment!
Sharon Shore was the ultimate host with the most heart centred opening speech. The silent auction and the generous donations by so many was a blast!!
Thank you! It was INCREDIBLE!!! Can’t wait for next year!!

"We recently attended a Suicide Prevention fundraiser and we were treated to an evening of extraordinary musicians.
The performance featuring Shari Chaskin, Peter LaMarr, Jon Day(musical director) and other gifted musicians and vocalists, was beautifully choreographed and presented, important with such a sensitive topic. Suicide had touched all of the lives in attendance in its own painful and unique way.
The music that was chosen, composed and performed spoke to our hearts with intense depth and joy. So much talent all on one stage!
We hope this is a fundraiser that blesses our city for years to come!"
"Shari Chaskin you did a magnificent job tonight with the benefit concert at The Rozsa Centre...The music was spectacular. 🎤 🎶
The venue beautiful. ⭐️
And the cause beyond worthy. I don’t think I know anyone who has not been impacted by suicide. So how beautiful to bring people together in the healing energy of song to bring hope to the world.
It takes a massive effort and dedication of many people to pull off an event like this… so a round of applause to all of you.

"Without a doubt, having Shari Chaskin sing at your next event, party, or celebration will add an element of distinction! No matter the genre of music she is singing, her powerful voice will fill the room with an unforgettable performance. Shari has performed several times over the years at special evenings that I have hosted, her voice always leaves my guests spellbound. If you are looking to add STAR quality to your next occasion, Shari is the one to call!" Michaela Hutchison, Community Architect/Philanthropist/
“It's one thing to be able to sing, but an artist who performs like Shari, does not come along every day. When she entertains, you wish the show would go on and on."
"Shari Chaskin and Jon Day performed for our wedding at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. It was spectacular. She truly is talented and has a sultry voice and presence. Jon is exquisitely talented on the piano. They played over 20 songs for our outdoor ceremony and learned most of them to suit what we wanted in our repertoire. The service we got could not be beaten. Our guests raved about the music for weeks afterwards. It truly did make the day that much more special. I would not hesitate to hire them for an event, big or small, lavish or informal.”
