Celebrated pianist and composer Anat Fort will perform an evening of music with her Anat Fort Trio on September 7th at the Ratner Museum in Bethesda, MD to benefit Parkinson's disease research for Parkinsong 4.
Parkinsong Records will produce the event as part of their long standing tradition of bringing great music and artists to the forefront of the fight to find a cure for Parkinson's disease. An independent record label and non-profit foundation, Parkinsong was created by the children of English teacher, Selma Litowitz, a Parkinson's disease sufferer who Jon Stewart once called The only teacher who liked me and made me laugh. Successful past concerts hosted by Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and legendary Philadelphia DJ Pierre Robert led to the release of 38 Songs of Hope, a CD compilation featuring Bonnie Raitt, Crosby & Nash, and a who's who of Americana artists including Alejandro Escovedo, Neko Case and Dave Alvin. Following the NPR acclaimed compilation, came the release of Ana Egge's critically-praised Out Past The Lights, Lazy Days, Road to My Love and Interlude, a compilation CD to benefit the MusicCares Foundation featuring Kelly Willis, Eleni Mandell, and Chuck Prophet amongst others.
Please join us for an evening of music and hope. Doors open at 6 pm and the music will begin at 6:30 pm with dessert reception to follow. To order tickets go to www.afhu.org/ParkinSong.
