Photo Coverage: Yale's Songs For Our Future
Sing for Hope (www.singforhope.org), a public service organization for artists, joined forces with Yale University to present an evening of song performed by distinguished Yale alumni. The second annual Songs for Our Future concert took place in honor of Yale's "Day of Service" as a benefit for Sing for Hope's Art U! program, which brings dynamic arts and leadership education to underserved New York City youth.
Richard Kind, perhaps best known for his roles on "Mad About You" and "Spin City," hosted this special evening. American television icon Dick Cavett was the featured performer of the evening. Yale alumni performed including Tony Award nominee Malcolm Gets (Story of My Life; A New Brain), Tony Award winner Ted Sperling (South Pacific; A Light in the Piazza), Mike Errico (VH1, Puccini for Beginners), Ali Ewoldt (Les Misérables; International Tour of West Side Story), Christopher Dylan Herbert (Boston Pops, Avery Fisher Hall), Amy Justman (Company; White Christmas), Nicole Lewis (Hair; Lennon), Sam Tsui (YouTube sensation; The Oprah Winfrey Show), Lauren Worsham (Candide at City Opera; Spelling Bee), Brian Neff (Founder of Peace Acchord) and their Yale alumni colleagues from the stages of Broadway.
Songs for Our Future was once again directed by Andy Sandberg (Tony Award winning producer of Hair), with musical direction by Andrew M. Byrne (Les Misérables; The Bridge Project). The performance took place at Clear Channel's P.C. Richard & Sons Theater (32 Avenue of the Americas in TriBeCa) at 8:00pm on May 7th, 2010.
