This Sunday I have been asked to emcee an important and entertaining event, which will be televised and I'd love you to join me there: A Global Concert to raise $250,000 for earthquake ravaged Haiti!
THE LONGWOOD SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA and THE NEW ENGLAND CONSERVATORY PERFORM SYMPHONIC RELIEF FOR HAITI: A GLOBAL CONCERT TO BENEFIT PARTNERS IN HEALTH!
NEC's JORDAN HALL Sunday January 31, 2010 12:30-2pm
The concert will be broadcast on WSBK TV38 Sunday February 7, 10-11pm
The concert brings together the Longwood Symphony Orchestra(mainly comprised of healthcare professionals many of whom are headed to Haiti to aid in medical relief there) plus NEC's Richard Stoltzman and Paula Robison, The Boston Children's Chorus, plus musicians from the Boston Conservatory, Boston University, The Longy School of Music, and two Haitian performers, one whose family survived but is living outside their home in Haiti in fear of aftershocks.
The Concert has already received a $10,000 sponsorship from Partners in Health, and $10,000 from the Tufts Health Plan. Proceeds will benefit the STAND WITH HAITI initiative of Partners In Health, the non-profit Boston-based health care organization which has been on the ground in Haiti for 20 years, and was the focus of Pulitzer Prizewinner Tracy Kidder's bestseller MOUNTAINS BEYOND MOUNTAINS: THE QUEST OF DR. PAUL FARMER, A MAN WHO WOULD CURE THE WORLD.
Tickets are $25 at the Jordan Hall Box office, 290 Huntington Ave. Boston
