NEW YORK (AP) — Actor Richard Gere hosted a benefit concert for Ukraine at Carnegie Hall that raised $360,000 for Direct Relief, a humanitarian organization providing medical aid.
NEW YORK (AP) — Singer Michael Feinstein, violinists Itzhak Perlman and Midori and pianist Evgeny Kissin will perform at a Carnegie Hall benefit concert for Ukraine on May 23.
Soprano Angel Blue, mezzo-sopranos Denyce Graves and Isabel Leonard, jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, singers Jessica Vosk and Adrienne Warren, and mandolinist Chris Thile also will perform along with Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect and the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York, the Hall announced Tuesday.
Over the decades, the marquee at the Garde Arts Center in New London has spelled out big-time attractions from Bob Dylan and Buddy Guy to Itzhak Perlman and Melissa Etheridge.
But the signage that went up Tuesday afternoon on the iconic theater's sign has elicited astounding response in a way that has nothing to do with impending Broadway productions, rock stars, or sky-kissing arias from mezzo-sopranos.
