New York Doctor-Pianist To Give Benefit Concert

July 20, 2007

The Costa Rican Art Museum will host two concerts by New York doctor and pianist Michael Errico to benefit San José’s Clínica sin Fronteras, a joint project of the International Health Central American Institute Foundation and Children Without Borders, a nonprofit organization that works with local and international partners to build health services and provide access to medical care for under-served children.

The organization was created by the friends of Paulette Barrantes, a Costa Rican girl who suffered a life-threatening bacterial infection in her legs but was saved thanks to free treatment at ShrinersHospital for Children in the U.S. city of Cincinnati (TT, Jan. 12).

Errico, an orthopedic surgeon who has spent time volunteering in Costa Rican hospitals, is an accomplished pianist who studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York.

The concerts will take place July 27 and 28 at 7 p.m. in the Salón Dorado at the CostaRicanArt Museum (222-7155) in western San José’s La Sabana Park. The price of admission is $30.
