The 8th Annual Music for Parkinson’s concert will be held on Sunday, December 5, at Rye Country Day School in Rye from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The event is organized by Music for Parkinson’s Research, an organization that is raising funds to benefit the
research programs of the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF).
Music for Parkinson’s was founded by three local individuals, including David Eger, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist from White Plains, NY and faculty member at Sarah Lawrence College. Eger was chosen four years ago as an inaugural member of PDF’s People with Parkinson’s Advisory Council, a group that advises the foundation on its research, education and advocacy programs. He and his co-founders, Marsha Winokur and John Stine, first established the concert to support research for the disease, for which there
is currently no cure.
The afternoon of high-quality chamber music will feature performances by the Attacca Quartet, one of America’s premier
young performing ensembles. The Julliard-educated, internationally recognized string musicians won the Alice Coleman Grand Prize in 2006. Playing alongside members of the quartet will be John Stine, principal clarinetist of the St. Thomas Orchestra and a founding member of the St. Thomas Chamber Music Players, and internationally-known pianist Gena Raps, a Julliard graduate and faculty member at The New School. All guests are invited to a wine and cheese reception with the musicians after the concert.
Donations of $25 are suggested.
