BENEFIT CONCERT FOR THE INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE

On Sunday, June 4, from 4-7 PM at 223 Stewart Avenue in Garden City, there will be a concert to benefit The International Rescue Committee. www.rescue.org The IRC’s mission is to aid all refugees, and there are currently plenty who need help. Following the concert will be a gourmet dinner, included in the $25. ticket price. For reservations contact [email protected] or 917 797 2225.

This concert features the triumphant return of The Folk Goddesses. Judith Zweiman, Martha Trachtenberg, Hillary Foxsong are all well-regarded artists in their own right. Combined, they are a force of nature. Other returning favorites include Josh Joffen – who sings music from the heart that never grows obsolete – and Mason Sansonia¸ fresh from Graduation Ceremonies at Hofstra. Nabilla Nazem will regale us with Middle-Eastern dancing. A lifelong dancer, Nabila has been performing dance and theatre with her signature dynamic flair in the New York area for over 15 years. Spotlight on Sidemen continues with legendary sax player Arno Hecht. Arno has played with The Rolling Stones, James Brown, The B-52s, and more people than there’s room to list. Also appearing will be Michael Sansonia, who’s performed on Broadway, played the blues with Richard Gere, and led a Country band in Africa. House band The Usual Suspects, some of NYC’s best studio musicians, will be on hand.
