Music for Parkinson's Research

PDF is pleased to announce that the 14th Annual Music for Parkinson's Research (MPR) will take place on Sunday, November 13 in Rye, NY. All proceeds from the concert benefit PDF's research programs.

What: An afternoon of chamber music, followed by a wine and cheese reception, benefiting PDF’s research programs. It features a performance by the Attacca Quartet, Quartet in Residence for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Gena Raps, pianist and faculty member at Mannes College The New School of Music.

Why: Proceeds benefit the MPR Research Fellowship at the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation. In 2015, the fellowship supported the research of Matthew Tang, Ph.D., of the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University, who is studying an imaging technique to learn about Parkin, a protein in the brain that may have potential as a therapy for Parkinson’s.

Who: Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, led by Music for Parkinson’s Research (MPR). MPR was founded in 2003 with the mission of raising money in support of Parkinson’s research, by sponsoring an annual musical event in Westchester.

Event Committee: Francie Camper, Carol Chase, David and Jane Eger, Jonathan Eger, Ellen Grober, Denny Jacobson, Eileen Lehrer, Robert Mencher, Martin and Cynthia Mintz, Regina Schwarz, John and Naomi Stine, Alan Weiner and Judy Zendell.
