The

Facts

Today, over 4,000 Canadians die by suicide every year. Suicide is the second-most common cause of death among young people. As reported by the World Health Organization in their 2002 World Report on Violence and Health, someone around the globe is killed by suicide every 40 seconds. In the year 2000, 815,000 people lost their lives to suicide, more than double the number of people who die as a direct result of armed conflict each year. Over 75% of suicide deaths are men, most between the ages of 30-69. For people between the ages of 15 and 44, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death and the sixth leading cause of disability and infirmity worldwide.

Our

Mission

To bring the gift of music to Canada on World Suicide Prevention Day, to raise awareness surrounding the mysterious barricades between mental illness and health, between the darkness of depression and a flicker of hope, between life and death. To encourage public discourse about the prevalence of suicide and measures for suicide prevention. To encourage the formation of community by those impacted by suicide, and to raise funds for education and support for those at risk and those impacted by suicide.

Our Name

Les Barricades Mystérieuses (The Mysterious Barricades) was composed in 1717 for the harpsichord by
François Couperin. It is the fifth piece in his “Ordre 6ème de clavecin” in B-flat major from his
second book of collected harpsichord pieces (Pièces de Clavecin). It is emblematic of the style
brisé characteristic of French Baroque keyboard music.

With this concert project we hope to raise the level of discussion and awareness surrounding the
mysterious barricades between mental illness and health, between the darkness of depression and the light of hope, between life and death.

Listen to Les Barricades Mystérieuses (The Mysterious Barricades), composed in 1717 by François Couperin and played on the harpsichord by Charlotte Rekken.
