On May 30, 2014, at 7:30 PM, a benefit concert featuring local professional musicians and talented youth musicians from the Preparatory School of New England Conservatory will take place in Newburyport at The First Religious Society, with all proceeds going to Pettengill House in Salisbury.
The program will include original music, as well as masterpieces ranging from a Dvorák Piano Trio to well-loved Jazz Standards, played by local legends such as Kristen Miller, Danny Harrington, Lea Pearson, and Lark Madden and the Jazz Vespers Band.
Local student and pianist Mateo Lincoln is organizing this event through Music for Food, which is a musician-led initiative to fight hunger in Boston area communities. Music For Food embraces the tenet that music and food are essential for life, as they both enrich us and allow us to grow. The organization strives to empower musicians of all ages to use their artistry to further social justice.
The First Religious Society Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 26 Pleasant Street in Newburyport. The concert is open for all ages and there will be a $10 suggested donation at the door.
