The “Leave A Lasting Mark” Concert Series is proud to present “Moondance: A Tribute to Van Morrison” to benefit Education Through Music, presented by Nimble Records. The concert will take place at the historic Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street, from 7-9 pm on Thursday Feb 9th, 2012.
This concert will feature over 45 of NYC’s finest musicians performing the entire “Moondance” album in order, followed by a variety of hits from Van Morrison’s illustrious ongoing career. These artists all play music professionally, and perform original music in small local venues like the Bitter End nightly. These gatherings are a showcase of the vibrant NYC music community, and the talent these artists display regularly.
This event, our 13th show, marks the start of our third year in existence, and we are pleased to be working with our 9th different charity to date. Past events have helped raise over $25,000 and counting for well known organizations such as City Harvest, Doctors without Borders and Ronald McDonald House New York; and local groups such as the Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY and Free Arts NYC. Our partner for this show is the locally based Education Through Music, a national organization that creates music programs in underfunded schools, teaching music both as a subject AND a means to better learning in other areas.
It is a suggested $10 donation at the door, going directly to the charity. Each paid guest will receive a CD of a prior L.A.L.M. concert. We are proud to welcome back Nimble Records as our title sponsor for this event, their second concert in this role. We are also very pleased to have John Schmitt as our Musical Director for the evening.
The “Leave A Lasting Mark” Concert Series pairs great causes with amazing local musicians, performing classic albums and honoring influential artists and genres to raise money for charity and build a deeper sense of community here in NYC.
