Nachum Peterseil

Nachum Peterseil

Nachum Peterseil's newest work is being performed by Milken’s Kol Echad and Concert Orchestra. 

For the past few months, Milken students have been a part of an incredible project called: "Songs from my Childhood". In partnership with Facing History and Ourselves, students interviewed Holocaust Survivors and based on these conversations, they selected four songs to record and perform. 
 
The idea behind the project was to create a musical conversation between Holocaust survivors and students of the 21st century, and to do so by participating in a hands on musical project that passes the music of one generation down to another. Some of the survivors will be attending the concert. The performance is open to the community. 

Milken’s choir, “Kol Echad,” led by Mrs. Sarah Shapiro and the Concert Orchestra led by Dr. David Brown recorded 4 songs at the UCLA studios on March 15. CD’s of this recording will be available for free at the concert.

BRCA Founder Outreach Study
May
1
to May 31

BRCA Founder Outreach Study

Free of charge testing for BRCA gene for women and men age 25 or older with at least one grandparent of Ashkenazi ancestry. 

A new, independent research initiative that seeks to increase access to testing for women and men age 25 or older with at least one grandparent of Ashkenazi (Eastern European) ancestry. This group is at least 10 times more likely than the general population to inherit certain kinds of BRCA mutations. Most of those at risk do not know they carry the mutated gene.

The testing — offered at no cost to the participant — will provide patients, families, and their doctors with knowledge that can reduce cancer risks and improve outcomes for those who carry a BRCA mutation.

Learn more at BFORStudy.com or by calling (833) 600-BFOR.
