Violinist headlines benefit concert in support of pediatric medicine

Long Island, NY, USA – Fifteen-year-old Jourdan Urbach has been combining his musical skills with his love of medicine for eight years through Children Helping Children, his foundation which organizes concerts to fund lifesaving surgery and medical equipment for children. Along with other talented young performers, Urbach, who has played the violin since the age of three, headlined the foundation’s latest concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
