Broadway and Classical Music Veterans Unite for FROM BACH TO BROADWAY at Symphony Space

NOTABLE UPPER WEST SIDE MUSICIANS UNITE FOR GALA EVENING

FROM BACH TO BROADWAY: MUSIC TO SAVE 711

A BENEFIT TO KEEP OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SAFE

JANUARY 23, 2017 | 7:00PM

Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Peter Norton Symphony Space

Featuring an All-Star Cast of Cabaret, Broadway and Classical Musicians

MONDAY, JANUARY 23 at 7:00PM, the Tenants' Action Group (TAG) of 711 West End Avenue presents a special evening showcasing Upper West Side musical talent. All of the participating artists are present and former Upper West Side or 711 West End Avenue residents, who have collaborated to produce a program of repertoire with special meaning for their lives. The first half of the concert will feature classical selections performed by pianists Warren Jones, Margaret Kampmeier and Erika Nickrenz, cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio, guitarist Andrew Schulman and former 711 West End Resident, flutist Eugenia Zukerman. The second half of the program is devoted to Broadway and cabaret with vocal selections from Britt Swanson Cryer, David Cryer, Gretchen Cryer, Nikki Renee Daniels, Anita Gillette, Jeff Kready, Quinn Lemley, Heather Mac Rae and Howard McGillin supported by pianist Nancy Ford and bassist Sean Smith. They will announce the program from the stage - along with the corresponding stories. Benefit tickets are priced at $75 (premium seating) and $50, and include a meet-the-artists' reception following the performance.

Harnessing the timeless power of music to focus community attention on the imminent threat to tenants and neighborhood safety and security, friends and residents of 711 West End Avenue are donating their performances to support TAG's ongoing, strenuous efforts to stave off construction and the resulting danger and disruption to all Upper West Side neighbors.

For ticket purchase and information visit the Symphony Space box office Tuesday through Sunday from 1PM - 6PM; phone (212) 864-5400; or visit www.symphonyspace.org.
