About MPR

Founded in 2003, Music for Parkinson’s Research (MPR) is a local (Westchester, N.Y.)  organization, the mission of which is to raise funds by presenting annual chamber music concerts to support research into the causes, treatments and ultimately  cure of Parkinson’s disease.  To date MPR has raised more than $500,000. 100% of the proceeds from our concerts have been given in support of basic research.  Currently, and for the last 5 years,  the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation has been  the recipient of the donations we have raised.
