Continuing care for Thad

John  T. Shaw - the son of the late American conductor Robert Shaw (see Note #1 below)  - lies paralyzed, living in a fulltime continuing care facility and is running out of funds to pay for his full time care. If you love art & music, the majesty of the human voice, and the higher calling of our humanity, you can have an immediate impact by helping to support Thad's continuing care.  Goal - Raise $35,000 for an American Veteran who needs your help.

Note #1: Robert Shaw (April 30, 1916 – January 25, 1999) was an American conductor most famous for his work with his namesake Chorale, with the Cleveland Orchestra and Chorus, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

Ditson Conductor's Award for Service to American Music; the George Peabody Medal for outstanding contributions to music in America, the Gold Baton Award of the American Symphony Orchestra League for "distinguished service to music and the arts," the American National Medal of Arts, France's Officier des Arts et des Lettres, England's Gramophone Award, and was a 1991 recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors.
