Silver Music hosts Community Concerts for a Cause on select Fridays at our Tiemann location (or 72nd St during Tiemann expansion). 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 community concert of 2019, Movements for Mankind, took place on Friday, February 22nd and featured Prometheus Duo performing on piano and saxophone. All proceeds were be donated to the International Refugee Assistance Project.
Our next concert will take place on Friday, May 17th at 7:30pm at 218 W 72nd St. All proceeds will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund.
