Musician Injury and Prevention: An evening with violinist Pamela Frank and Howard Nelson, PT
Acclaimed teacher and performer violinist Pamela Frank will be in Boston during the first week of January for a concert performance with the Grammy-nominated conductorless string orchestra A Far Cry.
Her performance is one of personal triumph: Pam's story as a violinist was interrupted by neck, shoulder and arm injuries which were recently resolved through physical therapy. Now she and Howard Nelson, her physical therapist (now also her husband) present at conservatories and academic institutions around the country about injury prevention through proper education, training and maintenance as a musician.
We have invited Pam and Howard to Harvard Medical School on Thursday, January 10 to share their insights on healthy playing and performance, and I'd like to extend this personal invitation to you to join us.
Their presentation consists of a talk by Pam and Howard followed by a robust discussion/demonstration. This will be of interest to physicians, students with an interest in performing arts medicine, musicians, music educators, physical therapists, and music therapists. We look forward to your input!
