I'm very excited to be taking part in a benefit concert next week at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral for a new charity, Sing With Haiti.
Sing With Haiti's mission is to raise funds and resources to support the ongoing work and rebuilding of Holy Trinity Music School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The school, which was destroyed in the devastating 2010 earthquake, and provides roughly 1500 children each year with a formal music education. To learn more - please watch the short video above. The undaunted will and spirit of these young musicians and their dedicated teachers is inspiring, and it is a beautiful touchstone to remind us all about the importance of music in our lives.
If you're in the Bay Area next Wednesday evening, please join us for a beautiful night of music-making on Nob Hill. It's quite the line-up of artists, including Deborah Voigt, Susan Graham, Jake Heggie, among other beloved colleagues. You can get tickets and find out more information here. If you aren't around, please consider making a contribution to Sing With Haiti via their website - remember, every bit helps and no amount is too small to make a huge difference to these young people.
