DMF Fall Events – You’re Invited!

My absolute favorite season is the Fall, which brings along with it one of our all-time favorite activities – DMF. This season Daniel’s Music has some amazing activities and opportunities lined up – the first couple are listed below. If I wasn’t due so soon I would totally take on that 5K… hope to see you there regardless, though!

Hope all is well! We hope that you will be able to join us for some (or all) of our upcoming events.
Please know that we appreciate your continued support and participation and hope to see you soon (and often)!
All the best,
Daniel, Ken, Nancy and Mike Trush
Sunday, September 30th – 5K Race at 10:00AM in Prospect Park with Music That Heals (Rain or Shine)
We have known Kathy Lord and Susan Weber (Founders of Music That Heals) for many years; they played music for Daniel in the hospital when he was emerging from his coma back in 1997 and performed at DMF’s very first Music Appreciation Event on February 26, 2006. So it gives us tremendous pleasure to now be collaborating with Kathy and Susan and Music That Heals for its Annual 5K Race in Prospect Park. It will be a fun day with awards, medals, goodie bags and wonderful camaraderie. There will also be a PeeWee Race at 11:00AM for ages 12 and younger. Plus, DMF will also be singing the National Anthem to start the race!
Cost – $20 per participant ($25 on race day); $10 for the PeeWee Race

Tuesday, October 2nd – Special concert with jazz pianist and composer, Jeff Franzel, at the Yamaha Artist Piano Salon; an evening of music, wine and hors d’oeuvres from 6:30pm-9:00pm

We have had a wonderful relationship with Yamaha, since Daniel met Lori Frazer, current DMF Board Member, at an AARP convention in September 2008 (no Daniel is not 50 but he knows people who are). The bond has strengthened through the added participation of Dr. Barry Bittman, CEO of Yamaha Music and Wellness Institute (also a DMF Board Member) and Bonnie Barrett, Director of Yamaha Artist Services here in NYC.
Yamaha Artist Services has arranged a special concert at their Piano Salon at 689 Fifth Avenue, 3rd Floor, with extraordinary jazz pianist and composer, Jeff Franzel, who has performed alongside such legendary entertainers as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Mel Tome. His original songs have been written for and performed by artists as diverse as Josh Groban, Placido Domingo, Clay Aiken and N’Sync.
The evening promises to be intimate and inspiring with wine and hors d’oeuvres and a special performance of Hear My Voice by the DMF Voice Technique class.
Tickets are $50 and seating is limited. Please RSVP to:
or call the DMF office at 212.289.8912. Credit card payments accepted at click here or checks can be made payable to Daniel’s Music Foundation, c/o The Trush Family, 1641 3rd Ave. #21A, New York, NY 10128.
