GBPSR and IPPNW are honored to have been selected as Community Partners for the 2018 season of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra’s (LSO’s) Healing Art of Music™ program.

The concert, as well as a dinner beforehand, will be dedicated to the memory of Dr. Victor Sidel, who was a pioneer and leader of our two organizations.
