Carnegie Hall's Music of Neil Young Charity Concert With The Roots and More to Benefit Music Programs for Underprivileged Youth
On Our Radar: Carnegie Hall's The Music of Neil Young Benefit Concert
Music do-gooding at its finest — on Thursday, Feb. 10, more than 20 musical artists will come together on the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall (881 Seventh Ave., 212-247-7800) for The Music of Neil Young concert benefiting music and arts programs for underprivileged youth. A mouthful to say, but the pack that it punches is significant. The tribute program, as it currently stands, features an impressive list of musicians: Patti Smith, The Roots (pictured left), Pete Yorn, Mason Jennings, Aimee Mann, Keller Williams, and DeVotchKa to name a few. But, of course, the real music to your ears should be that 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the following NYC youth organizations: Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools, Church Street School for Music & Art, The Pinwheel Project, Music Unites, The American Symphony Orchestra, and Young Audiences New York. Keep an eye (and ear) out for even more artists who are slated to perform at the charity event!
And most importantly, get your ticket for what's sure to be a ridiculously amazing feel-good evening of music.
