Sarah and Ben Heard
Performing Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, arranged for Cello and Piano
We bought our first home in Concord two years ago and have been gratefully putting down roots ever since. Part of the settling for us and our daughters has meant sharing the warm welcome we’ve received here with those who don’t enjoy our same security. Volunteering our time and talents for CCEH is a fun way to help and get to know our neighbors.
Haeleigh Hyatt, Aim High Canines
Join the Aim High Canines as they perform doggie acrobatics and Frisbee tricks!”
As a performer, I do what I do to make people smile. Individuals experiencing homelessness is such a relevant issue in our community. I’m excited to use my skills with my dogs to also raise awareness for such a worthy cause.
Keith will be performing a choreographed piece on his Cyr Wheel, a six-foot diameter, 40-pound aluminum ring. The wheel is controlled with strength and balance and is effectively his dance partner!
I have always been a warm supporter of CCEH for their kind acts in our community. We bring their culture into our workspace every day: help those in need whenever possible!
Canterbroke-Gary Stewart & Amanda Osmer
Gary and Amanda will play a traditional American folk music song.
My family business is Grappone Automotive, and we’ve supported the Coalition for several years now. Part of our mission as a company is to build lifelong relationships with our community, and we commit 7.5% of our net profit annually to charity. I’m excited to support the Coalition in such a fun and creative way.
Last year Brenda met someone who was very inspiring to her and reminded her how much she loved to express herself through the written word. With this inspiration she has now written over 20 poems and hopes to complete a book of poetry by next year.
I’m excited to help with the Coalitions event! As a Realtor for 24 years homelessness and affordable housing have always been in the forefront of my mind and volunteer activities. Helping others is a gift in itself and this is a community that cares. I’m honored.
Nate will be performing original music expressing the transcendental nature of Life, the Universe and Everything.
Looking forward to getting Lost in the Arts for a great cause! As an artist who has experienced being homeless myself, this event means a lot to me.

Becca will be performing a Scottish anthem, which is an original, called “Alba gu Brath”. Her inspiration for this song came from her strong passion for the music, language and culture of Scotland.
I’m so so excited to be a part of this talent show! It is for such a great cause. I hope that by sharing my music it will inspire others, and help to bring communities together in support of ending homelessness in the Greater Concord Area.
Roman and Jennifer
Roman and Jennifer will be performing an improvisational based Dramatic Argentine Tango.
Roman and Jennifer are thrilled to be a part of this show, among other very talented performers. The cause is very important and we are glad to be able to be part of this, not only to help raise funds but to focus people’s attention on those who are not as fortunate as we are, and the small ways we can help others.
The Community Players of Concord
The Community Players of Concord, NH offers a sneak peek from their fall musical, Sweet Charity, which will be performed at the Concord City Auditorium the weekend of November 22-24.
We love Concord and are beyond grateful to CCEH for its leadership in the quest to end homelessness here. When we heard that we could assist CCEH by contributing a performance to the show, we jumped at the chance. It’s going to be great fun for a great cause.

My mission as a music therapist is to have the biggest impact possible in our community to help others- whether it be using music to rewire the neurological system after a brain injury, helping a child take their first steps or speak their first words, helping someone who struggles with mental health, or to help someone learn how to advocate for themselves. Sarah Cooley is one of the best role models in our community when it comes to advocating for others and herself using music. She wrote the song we will be sharing in an effort to express the importance of community and family in her life- something we can all relate to. We need to stand up for those with the greatest needs. We are both so excited to be advocating for CCEH by sharing not only our talents, but by sharing our mission.” -Julieann Hartley, MT-BC, NMT
Ava will be singing “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
I am very excited to perform for the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness because it is such a great way to raise money to help people in our community.
