So much has happened in the past year. Some of the highlights:
In the Spring we held our Third Annual Music For Mankind® Community Charity Drive to raise food for the Manchester Food Cupboard, and also performed a benefit concert for the Food Cupboard. I am truly grateful to all who helped make these events so successful.
In July I held the first-ever Music For Mankind® - Ride For The Hungry™ motorcycle rally to raise funds. The turnout was small but enthusiastic, and I learned what makes a successful rally. Next year's rally will be one to keep an eye on.
I've been traveling all over Vermont and a bit in New York, New Hampshire and Massachussets showing the documentary I produced, "Nicaragua - On The Ground". It's inspiring for me to see the powerful response this evokes in people. So many have said they felt as though they had traveled with me to Nicaragua. The discussions have been lively and caring. So many people have asked me how they can help.
In August I created a new concert series, "Give My Regards To Broadway", a concert of Broadway and American favorites. Read more about the concerts. Performing as a solo vocalist with pianist Paul Opel of Rutland, we have traveled all over Vermont and also Massachussets and New York, performing at retirement homes. Again, there is an incredibly powerful response to the memories this music evokes. Hear a sample. This series is available for public and corporate functions, as well as private parties, tour groups and conventions.
