Good title for a conference on musical injury, next month in Toronto.
Concertmaster Steve Sitarski tells us: ‘Several years ago a group of health care providers decided to pool their knowledge, experience, and resources to form the Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA). The aim of this group is primarily educating both artists and the general public of performance challenges, and how artists facing issues can seek empathetic health professionals. Ultimately, healthy performers will execute better, and will take more creative risks – a win win situation for all.
‘PAMA will be presenting a major conference on February 11 and 12 at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music.’
