Violinist Gregory Maytan Hosts Fundraisers for Sick 11-year-old Son

Since finding a diagnosis for his son, the effort is now towards raising funds to bring him to a doctor in Rhode Island


Based in Leipzig, Germany, violinist Gregory Maytan regularly performed concerts internationally. He has been nominated for a Grammis Award (Swedish Grammy) and completed a Fulbright Specialist Grant at the Norwegian Academy of Music. He is a graduate of the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, studying with Miriam Fried, Alexander Kerr, and Paul Biss.

This past year, his 11-year-old son Nabil has been diagnosed with a tethered cord and will need surgery to correct it. Maytan has set up a fundraiser on GiveSendGo to help get his son to a doctor at Rhode Island's Brown University Hospital who can really help him.

On October 7, 8, and 9, Maytan is hosting three fundraising concerts to help aid the cause. Titled "Violin Virtuosity," the evenings of music will feature special guests violinist Alexander Gilman and pianist Marina Seltenreich.

"Nabil is gaining a little weight and eating a lager variety of foods which is the good news," Maytan writes. "We no longer believe he is in any immediate danger even if he still can't walk, talk, sit up alone, and still suffers from the most horrendous and constant headaches."

Instead of playing with his friends and pursuing his interests, Nabil has not been able to attend school since November 2021. 

"Nabil recently told me that the hardest thing about being sick for him is that he is unable to help or do anything for other people," he continued. "He burns with a desire to do good in the world. Almost two years of his childhood have been cruelly taken away from him. We do feel that time is really running out if he is still to have the chance of making a full recovery. If you have the possibility to continue helping him or to share this fundraiser please know we would be most grateful."
