On Saturday, April 2 at 8pm a longtime EuroCircle member Julian Gargiulo is giving a benefit concert at Lang Hall, Hunter College (68th Street between Park and Lexington Ave) for the victims of the devastating tsunami which recently hit Japan. The concert is co-sponsored by Crossing Borders and 16000children and ALL funds raised will go to Japan.
Julian will be performing with an incredible group of musicians including Joe Burgstaller (trumpet), Roza Tulyaganova (soprano), Olga Shyp (soprano) and Marie-Éve Poupart (violin) in a program including music from Brahms to Piazzolla.
General Admission $20.00. Tickets can be purchased online at http://16000children.org/perform.html or $25.00 at the door the night of the performance. (our last fundraiser sold-out early, so please buy tickets in advance)
Following intermission there will be a live auction hosted by auctioneer Ryan Manna and featuring international models Nese, Betina and Natia. Our generous sponsors are The Metropolitan Opera, The Jumeirah Essex House Hotel, Ristorante San Rocco, The American Museum of Natural History, Museum of Russian Art in New Jersey, The Westerhoff Foundation, Rosangela Spa, Complete Body and Spa, Jeannette von Weil Fashion and Riza Manalo Designs.
