Description

Please join us for a benefit concert to support Jaden Doher and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All proceeds will be split between the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the family of Jaden Doher, to help defray expenses associated with her medical treatment.

Jaden is an 8th grader at The Bromfield School in Harvard, Mass. In December, 2017, she was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Her treatments are a combination of inpatient and outpatient chemo at Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic Jaden’s treatment plan includes several hospitalizations for intensive chemotherapy along with her outpatient services. She will receive cancer treatment for a minimum of two years.

Harvard resident, classical guitarist, Dave McLellan, founder of Concert In Your Living Room, will present a full recital of works ranging from the 16th to the 20th centuries, covering two hemispheres and three continents. Composers featured are Heitor Villa-Lobos, Claude Debussy, Francois Couperin, Augustin Barrios, and the Spanish composers Manuel de Falla and Isaac Albeniz. Bromfield School music educator and pianist Nikolaus Hunt joins Mr. McLellan for a performance of the Guitar Concerto #1 by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco.
