Kids Need Music Annual Benefit Concert
Saturday, November 23, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Kids Need Music presents a program of art songs, arias and popular songs by acclaimed soprano Kathleen O’Mara and pianist Chris Reynolds.
Kathleen O’Mara is a soprano from Fort Washington, Pennsylvania and is studying for her M.M. at Juilliard. Ms. O’Mara has performed in The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, The Turn of the Screw and Don Giovanni.
Chris Reynolds performances have been hailed by Opera News as “exquisite,” and played with “jaw-dropping virtuosity.” He currently is a Doctoral Candidate at Juilliard with recent performances at Carnegie Hall and Tanglewood. Mr. Reynolds is a two time winner of the Juilliard Vocal Arts Honors Recital Auditions leading to recitals in Alice Tully Hall.
All proceeds will be used to purchase band instruments to be donated to the Hudson City School District so that more children can participate in the music program. 68% of the children of Hudson are classified as underprivileged and can not afford to rent or purchase their own instrument. To date, Kids Need Music has donated over 300 instruments to the Hudson schools. That’s 300 more children playing music!
Ticket sales to be announced soon.
