Posted on: December 5, 2018

Idaho’s Boise Philharmonic will bring music to patients with Parkinson’s Disease through a new partnership with the St. Luke’s Health System’s neuroscience division. The partnership will launch with a free “Music and Movement” event on December 8 for patients and caregivers, using music to encourage movement in those who have Parkinson’s disease. Members of the Boise Phil Youth Orchestra will perform live, and movements will be led by Ballet Idaho’s Liz Keller and Nathan Powell, both dancers with Dance for Parkinson’s Idaho. The event at the Esther Simplot Performing Arts Academy in downtown Boise is free, and light refreshments will be served.
