Sing for Hope Donor Artists The Alpha Omega Ensemble, SYBARITE5, and Bora Yoon will join forces November 21 for a fundraising concert to bring food and care to the homeless of New York City this Thanksgiving.
Online PR News – 12-November-2010 – – On Sunday, November 21, New York non-profit organization Sing for Hope welcomes all to a celebration of music at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church in Manhattan. World-class Sing for Hope Donor Artists will present "Sing for Hope: Sing for Home" to bring food and care to the homeless of New York City this Thanksgiving. The concert will feature works by J.S. Bach, Michael Torke, and John Adams.
The Thanksgiving concert will feature Conductor Brian DeMaris, who has served as Associate Conductor at New York City Opera and Assistant Conductor at Florida Grand Opera, leading the acclaimed Alpha Omega Ensemble. Joining Mr. DeMaris will be string ensemble Sybarite5 and experimental multi-instrumentalist, composer and performer Bora Yoon.
This benefit concert brings awareness and funding to support Services and Food for the Homeless, which has brought vital services for the undocumented, the displaced, the working poor, and the homeless of our city since 1986.
"The proceeds from the concert will go to provide a haven for people to turn to when they have nowhere else to go. Our Donor Artists performing in the Thanksgiving concert feel a need to use their art to give back to communities in need," says co-founder Camille Zamora.
"Sing for Hope: Sing for Home" will begin with a free dinner open to all at 6 p.m., followed by the concert at 7:30 p.m. A $20 donation is suggested for admission, and non-perishable food and clothing donations are welcome. More information about the concert and other community outreach programs and events sponsored by this New York non-profit organization can be found at the singforhope.org website.
