    "Our diverse audiences have enjoyed their concerts immensely and we have found it especially appropriate to have these community-minded young people here as we raise awareness for North Shore Hospice as a place where family and friends meet and where we can all help to make the last days of a loved one's life as rich and rewarding as possible."
