The Urology Care Foundation's benefit concert took place on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA. This extraordinary event celebrated the work of John Williams, the legendary composer and Grammy award winner credited with scoring such Hollywood blockbusters as Star Wars, Jaws, Superman and more. The concert featured Maestro Jonathan McPhee and the Lexington Symphony, with accompaniment by the New World Chorale. The magnitude of your participation made an impact on the Boston community helping to raise substantial support to advance urologic research and education, including urologic cancers globally.
