This year, Silver Music is hosting Community Concerts for a Cause every month on select Fridays at our Tiemann location. The goal of these concerts is to offer affordable, unique performances to our community in Morningside Heights and Upper Manhattan, and to raise money for a worthwhile cause on a larger scale.
Our first concert, Giving Bach to Puerto Rico took place on Friday, November 3rd and we are thrilled to announce we raised $4,320 through Americares, a relief and development organization working with officials in Puerto Rico to stock emergency shelters with medical supplies.
Our second concert, Musicians Take a Stand for Refugees took place on Friday, December 8th and we exceeded our personal goal for contributing to this national movement, donating all our proceeds to the International Rescue Committee.
Our first concert of the new year, Music for the March, took place on January 19th, the eve of the Women’s March on NYC. All proceeds were donated to the Women’s March Alliance.
Our February concert, Cello Sonatas for Social Change, took place on February 23rd to support Musicians Without Borders, an organization that builds connections in areas of conflict using the power of music.
Our March concert, Music For Our Lives, took place on March 16th to support March For Our Lives featuring Silver Music faculty and musicians from the Morningside Heights community.
April Concert TBD.
Our May concert, Tapping the Young Artist, will take place offsite, at Goddard Riverside Community Center, on Sunday, May 6th and 2pm. This concert will feature music, dance, and theater and all proceeds for this event will benefit Goddard Riverside Performing Arts Camp.
