Come one, come all!!!
Mezzo-soprano Catherine Hedberg and I will be presenting a recital in June to raise money for the wonderful organization Pencils of Promise. http://www.pencilsofpromise.org
In partnership with the Bronxville School, we are looking to raise money for Pencil of Promise's effort to build a preschool in Laos. We are therefore launching a campaign through Idiegogo.
ere are some more fantastic details:
We will be performing at 440 Studios in their White Box Space at 440 Layfayette Street on JUNE 8 at 8:00 pm.
epertoire in this concert will be thrilling! It will feature a string quartet and a set of three duets written for Catherine and me with the string quartet. Will Healy (willhealymusic.com) composed the music and is using text that I wrote many years ago.
Catherine and I will also be singing some individual sets of music, including Chausson's Chanson Perpetuelle, Bernstein's "Dream with Me," songs by Richard Strauss, and much more! Lloyd Arriola will be playing piano and music directing. It's sure to be amazing!
Everything we earn over the minimal costs will go directly to Pencils of Promise to give young children the chance to have an education, something we take for granted in this country.
