George Benskin's Benefit Concert Raises $1,000
To a standing ovation of about 85 attendees, George Benskin took his final bow on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at the benefit concert he offered on behalf of the Tacy Foundation. George carefully selected his program to create a dynamic array of style, tempos, and nuance, and he narrated his program with eloquence and humor. The narrative included personal observations and anecdotes of the selections, both the original, as well as, standard advanced repertoire. For those of you who took the afternoon to come and support George and to support. The Tacy Foundation, you have witnessed an emerging creative artist. Thank you for your presence and for your generous donations! George raised $1000 for the foundation in that moment, thanks to all of you and his willingness to share his music.
Pianists performed for patients at Loch Raven Veterans Administration Rehab Center and again for residents of HOC Senior Apartments. The music (and cookies) were enjoyed by all. Thank you to the fearless 13 and their families for having warm hearts on the coldest of days.
