Boston Weekly Cultural & Artistic Picks 09/17 – 09/23, 2012

Opening Night at Symphony Hall
September 17 – 23, 2012

Nélida Nassar  09.17.2012

The Picks of the Week:
Music for Food at the New England Conservatory on Monday, September 17, 2012
2012 – 2113 Opening Night at Symphony Hall on Friday, September 20, 2012

Inspired by Carol Rodland’s Rochester-based model “If Music be the Food…” NEC faculty Kim Kashkashian established Music for Food.  It is a Boston-based musicians’ initiative for hunger relief that recognizes that the power of music can call forth the best in human beings and can inspire both awareness and action. Music for Food concerts will be exploring the chamber music of Antonín Dvorák paired with classic Lieder.

Each benefit concert brings gifted young artists and internationally celebrated musicians together to inspire audiences to pass on the musical gift they receive.  Audiences are asked to become a partner by helping to nourish those in our community who struggle to feed their families by donating either a non-perishable food item or a monetary gift as their income permits. 100% of contributions go to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
