Two superb New York City artists in concert to benefit Project Creo. In addition to music of Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, Cassado, de Falla and Piazzolla, a multimedia presentation by Michael Sample, founder of Project Creo, precedes the hour-long concert. A wine reception with the artists follows.
Project Creo uses the arts to offer homeless + underserved youth opportunities to create and to believe in themselves as voices of worth and as potential agents of change. We do this by connecting local teaching artists to local youth in local spaces. For more information, please visit:
