Emory's center is member of the Udall Parkinson's Disease Research Center network. Established in 1998 by Congress and managed through the NIH, these centers foster cutting-edge translational research into the causes and possible treatments for Parkinson's disease. Emory's center focuses on improving our understanding of movement problems in Parkinson's disease at the brain network level.
Battlefield Collective is the combined musical talents and efforts of Stephanie Caron and Evan Hart. A unique blend of bluegrass, Americana, roots, and rockabilly give the group an unmistakable and unique sound that is as full of energy as it is passion.
Touring the southeast, Battlefield Collective performs original material as well as their own arrangements of cover songs selected from top hits from the past sixty years. Energy and creativity set Battlefield Collective apart from the other bands, as well as their ability to be flexible and versatile.
Stephanie and Evan perform as a duo, but also frequently hire local musicians to create a fuller sound.
He Sang She Sang, also known as HsSs, is a songwriting and arranging duo that thrives on musical exploration and live performance. Each having led a musical life before they met, Bronne and Alma have only begun making music together a year after they were married. Their complementing songwriting and arranging styles resulted in a fruitful musical union.
He Sang She Sang specifically writes music for voice and their instruments: the piano, guitar, glockenspiel, and other percussion instruments. Indeed, vocal and instrumental interaction is key to their unique and inventive musical style, and have even included unusual instruments, such as Philippine gongs and jaw's harp, to their arrangements.
Sanjay Kothari is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Atlanta, GA. As well as being a musician, he's a founding member and member of the board of Songs for Kids Foundation.
