Harmony for Hope
MJ's Music School's 4th Annual “Harmony for Hope” benefit concert is coming up on Sunday, March 15th at 3:30 pm at Payson Park Church. Suggested Donation $15.00. This year we are raising funds to help further Gall Bladder Cancer research, specifically with Dr. Cristina Ferrone at Mass General Hospital. MJ's Music School's beloved teacher and friend, Shadi Ebrahimi, is battling Gall Bladder Cancer. Shadi was diagnosed last Spring. It was found at stage 4, and while she fought really hard with aggressive chemo for several months, it recently became clear that she was not responding. Originally from Iran, she has just recently returned there to visit her family and it is not known if she will be able to make it back to her home in Boston or not. I am thankful she was able to feel well enough to travel. This is very sad news for Shadi's students and friends.
Our “Harmony for Hope” concert promises to be wonderful afternoon of a wide variety of music! You will hear oratorio, opera, jazz, pop, blues, and music theater pieces performed not only by Shadi's students, but also by seasoned Boston professionals who can be heard at Boston Lyric Opera, Longy School of Music, in Roomful of Blues, in the Dave Fox Jazz Trio, and many more venues. Our own Megan Henderson will be joining us as well! Please come help share this afternoon of joy in music with us. If you are unable to attend, but wish to donate, you may do so with a check made out to: Dr. Cristina Ferrone's, MD Cancer Research Fund. You may leave it for me in my mail box in the church office.
Thank you so much for your support,
