Sing for the Cure

Sing for the CureIf you'll be on Long Island the first weekend in April, you can hear gorgeous music performed by my favorite GLBT chorus, the New Century Singers, and help raise money to defeat breast cancer. These singers have the voices of angels; they've performed at Carnegie Hall. Listen to a snippet of them singing.

They'll be performing Sing for the Cure, a work commissioned by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as a way of honoring the stories of breast cancer survivors and the friends and families of those who did not survive. Librettist Pamela Martin interviewed scores of people whose unique stories comprise the narration and lyrics for ten songs set to the music of ten composers, each of whom has been touched by breast cancer in some way.

Concert proceeds will benefit Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition, Cure Mommy's Breast Cancer, Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition, the Long Island Lesbian Cancer Initiative, Thursday's Child, and other local grassroots breast cancer support groups.

Where: Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, 71 East Main Street, Patchogue, New York
