Blind And Visually Impaired Music Students From  Lighthouse Guild Perform “The Rhythm Of Life” Concert At  The Metropolitan Museum Of Art

Seventeen-year old rising jazz star and music student Matthew Whitaker will join students who are also blind or visually impaired from Lighthouse Guild's Filomen M. D'Agostino Greenberg Music School to perform in a concert at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday, May 18, from 7 to 8:30 pm in the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium.

Since 1997 Lighthouse Guild's music school and The Metropolitan Museum of Art have been collaborating to provide individuals who are blind or visually impaired the opportunity to experience visual art through music. This year's concert will feature musical selections inspired by paintings, sculpture and photographs. Actress Michelle Hurst, formerly of the show "Orange is the New Black" and starring in the Off-Broadway production of "Babette's Feast," will provide narration for the program, including verbal descriptions of the works of art.

The selected musical repertoire will showcase a wide variety of genres and styles, representing the best of the students with performances featuring music school soloists, vocal ensemble, pop/rock group, youth ensembles and movement by choreographer/dancer Mana Hashimoto.

This year's concert entitled "The Rhythm of Life" is free with Museum admission
