IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency
The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF), founded in 1980, is the national non-profit patient organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of persons with Primary Immunodeficiency (PI) through advocacy, education and research. There are approximately 250,000 people who are diagnosed with PI in the U.S., and thousands more go undetected.Did you know that because of IDF Walk for PI we were able to establish the IDF Research Grant? This program is fully funded by dollars raised through IDF Walk for PI. In fact, this past fall we awarded the first grant to Sonia Sharma, PhD of La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology to help support clinical research of PI. A second round of grants will be awarded in the first half of 2017.Together, we are making a difference. Together, we can change the future for people with PI.

Grand Mass in E-flat major by Amy Beach: Commonwealth Chorale and New England Philharmonic
REBIRTH OF AN AMERICAN CLASSIC "Grand Mass in E-flat major" by Amy Beach An exclusive evening with Commonwealth Chorale & the New England Philharmonic Join us for one of the most exciting concerts in our 42-year history, as Commonwealth Chorale presents the first major choral and orchestral work to be premiered in the U.S. by an American woman composer. At its premiere 125 years ago by the Handel & Haydn Society, Amy Beach's majestic "Grand Mass" was enthusiastically received, but it has rarely been performed since 1892 because it lacked a legible full orchestral score--till now. Music scholar Matthew Phelps has created a critical edition of the full score and given Commonwealth Chorale the right of first performance in Boston. We are honored to team with the internationally-renowned New England Philharmonic to reintroduce the Greater Boston community to this important work and place it firmly in the classical choral repertoire. We encourage you to get your tickets early as this performance may sell out.

When: Nov 11, 2017 8pm to Nov 11, 2017 10pm in West Roxbury, MA
Cost: 25 - 35 USD
