Judy Collins Concert in New Haven September 20 — Will Benefit Women's Health Research at Yale
Songwriter and performer Judy Collins will perform at Yale University September 20, 2006, at 7 p.m. in a benefit concert—“An Evening with Judy Collins”—to support Women’s Health Research at Yale.
“Judy Collins is such a great talent. We are delighted that she is coming to perform for the benefit of our program,” said Carolyn Mazure, M.D., director of Women’s Health Research at Yale School of Medicine.
Collins is known worldwide for her music and lyric performances. Her rendition of “Both Sides Now” has been entered into the Grammy’s Hall of Fame. Her version of “Send in the Clowns” won Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards. Collins’ more contemporary songs have included the poignant and haunting “Wings of Angels.”
The concert will be held in Sprague Hall at Yale School of Music. Tickets go on sale August 1 at www.yale.edu/music or by calling (203) 432-4158. The presenting sponsor of the event is Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Women’s Health Research at Yale is the largest, self-supporting interdisciplinary women’s health research program in the country. It was created in 1998 to respond to the need for scientific information on women’s health and on gender-specific factors determining health and disease.
Although the focus of the program’s work is on women’s health, it generates scientific investigations that broaden the scope of knowledge on human health and operates on the belief that making a difference in women’s lives will benefit every member of society.
