Here's a note from Mark to explain more:
Two years ago, Wanda Houston, Billy Keane and I got together and did a holiday music show online to benefit the food and beverage workers of our town because they were devastated by the pandemic. Thank you all for joining us, and supporting a great cause. Because of you we were able to give checks to 71 food servers in Lenox.
This year, we wanted to do something good again. What we came up with is a live holiday music benefit concert on Wednesday, December 14th at 7pm at Church on the Hill in Lenox, MA. We added Matt Cusson, a recently Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and musician, and we talked about who the benefit should be for.
Together, we decided to split our profits between two well-established and forward-thinking organizations - the Berkshire School of Music, because of their long-standing outreach programs that bring the gift of music to all ages, regardless of their ability to pay; and Music in Common. MIC was founded after the killing of journalist Daniel Pearl in the middle east. Daniel loved music and playing music. His good friend Todd Mack decided to start building ways to bring people with strong differences, be they color, nationality or otherwise, together through music. You might be aware of MIC’s Black Legacy Project.
I don’t work for either of these organizations. They didn’t hire me to produce this event. I’m doing it because 1) I love the spirit of peace, love and giving that overtakes us during the holidays. 2) Because I love music – especially the music of these talented musicians, along with the addition of a rising star in our midst, Christine Bilé, who will be serenading us during the after-concert wine, nosh and desserts reception. And 3) because I love community. Getting together and enjoying each other is where everything begins.
Tickets to the live evening include the concert and reception afterwards with complimentary food and drink. They are $45 for adults and $20 for kids under 16. Then, (for friends near and far!) the concert will be re-broadcast online from December 18 – January 1 for a donation of your choosing. Go to www.HolidayMusicShow.com to get tickets.
Please consider coming out to this fine evening of entertainment with us live, or enjoying it in the comfort of your home with your families.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
