Sing for Hope: Sing for Haiti

As you all know, on Tuesday night, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti 15km from the capital. Reaching a magnitude of 7.0, it was the worst earthquake Haiti has experienced in 200 years. The extent of the devastation is still unclear, but as many as 50,000 people have died and millions more are affected.

Now and in the months ahead, Sing for Hope will do all we can to respond to this crisis. We will mobilize our Donor Artists in performances at fundraising events for charitable organizations that provide key support on the ground in Haiti. Furthermore, we will continue, as per our mission, to bring the transformative power of art to underserved schools, hospitals, and communities in our own country -- many of which will be affected by the Haitian crisis because of familial ties and diverted charitable giving.

If you are available this Saturday evening, we encourage you to attend a recital benefiting Haitian disaster relief by Sing for Hope Donor Artist Jesse Blumberg (acclaimed baritone and founder of Five Boroughs Music Festival) and the wonderful pianists Kamel Boutros and Greg Brewer:

An Evening of Music by Handel, Mozart, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and Cole Porter benefiting Haiti Disaster Relief Effort

Jesse Blumberg, baritone
Kamel Boutros, pianist
Greg Brewer, special guest pianist

January 16th, 8:00 PM
Calvary Church 21st and Park Avenue,
New York, New York

Suggested Donation: $20

Thank you for your support of the Sing for Hope mission of uplifting communities in need through arts outreach. We send all best wishes to you and yours.
