In 2010, moved by reports that poverty and hunger have risen in the current Recession, a group of New England Conservatory artist faculty, students and alumni, headed by violist Kim Kashkashian united to present a chamber music concert series to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. "Price of admission" to the concerts was a donation of non-perishable food items or a check to the GBFB.
Tonight Music For Food returns to launch their second series of concerts. Join the fight against hunger and hear some of Boston's finest musicians. Instead of a ticket, bring a food or monetary donation for the Greater Boston Food Bank.
This season's artists include Miriam Fried, Donald Weilerstein, Pamela Frank, Kim Kashkashian, Dimitri Murrath, Lawrence Lesser, Marcy Rosen, Tom Novak, Paul Biss, Yura Lee and Deborah Pae.
Tonight's performers: Miriam Fried, Lucy Chapman, Paul Biss, Kim Kashkashian, Deborah Pae, Tom Novak, Tom Handel, Paul Katz and Sebastian Chaves.
