Concert for a Cure

The Coucil of Heritage and Arts of India, or CHAI, has selected the Parkinson's Foundation Western New York to receive the proceeds from this event.

The “Concert for a Cure” is going to be an incredible evening of music. The musicians are world renowned performers who are coming to Buffalo from India. Hindustani music has a very long history. Ragas are a form of Indian music that are written from a very purposeful perspective. The music is composed to reflect specific moods, moments and integral elements of life. Ragas correspond to a certain energy that flows with the subject of the music. It has long been believed that this music can possess recuperative powers.

For this performance, the musicians will be selecting ragas with an understanding of Parkinson’s disease in mind. They will then be performing pieces that they believe will have benefit for those who have received a diagnosis. No one should expect to be cured by hearing this music, but we are hopeful that it might provide a benefit of some sort. The mention of cure in the title of the event is more reflective of the fact that our organization will receive the proceeds from the show, and those funds will support our efforts toward finding a cure.

We hope that you will join us for this very special evening for a musical experience like no other. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Chris Jamele at 716 449-3795. Don't miss this opportunity to explore a new musical avenue that might be as helpful as it is beautiful.
