Memorial Service at Roseland Park Cemetery

Each weekend we have the opportunity to provide music and rejoice with families throughout the metro area as they celebrate weddings and special events in their family’s lives. Once a year, we have a different type of opportunity. This engagement tugs at our hearts and challenges us emotionally. Each year, Beaumont Hospital holds a Memorial Service at Roseland Park Cemetery in Berkley for the families that have lost an infant. The service is held in the historic mausoleum and is let by a Beaumont Chaplain. During the service, each child’s name is read, a candle is lit to commemorate their continuing light in the lives of their families and a balloon is released. The time is poignant, tearful and in a way, celebratory. This service provides a reminder that for the life that was, though short in duration, is and will continue to be cherished by their loved ones. It is not a performance we look forward to, yet we are honored to provide the music for the service each year.
