The Parkinson's Foundation is pleased to invite you to:
15th Annual Music for Parkinson's Research
An afternoon of chamber music to support the Parkinson's Foundation
Sunday, October 29, 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM
2125 Westchester Avenue East, Rye, NY
Tickets will be available later this summer.
What: An afternoon of chamber music, followed by a wine and cheese reception, benefiting the Parkinson's Foundation. The event will feature 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. All proceeds from the concert benefit the Foundation's research programs.
Why: Proceeds benefit the Parkinson’s Foundation. In 2016, the fellowship supported the research of Rosalind Roberts, B.Sc., D.Phil., of the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University, who is studying the quality control process for keeping mitochondria (the powerhouse of cells) healthy and what might go awry in the process to cause PD.
Who: Parkinson’s 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.
