It will be an evening filled with beautiful music. 

Gaby is a Doctoral candidate at University of Texas, Dallas, and has an active performing career. She also has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  During this concert she will discuss what this condition means, and how it has effected her performing career.  There will be a free will donation at the close of the concert and a portion of this donation will go to an EDS research foundation.
