by now most of our area is back to work, trains, tunnels and transit almost to 100% pre Hurricane schedules. But there are still pockets of devastation, people without power, without homes, and a sense of urgency to get back to "normal." I know it seems trivial, but today and all this week I will sing for NY and will be donating the contributions I receive to help those in need.
GrowNYC/Greenmarket and local community kitchens will be providing healthy food for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and relief workers. So I will be taking the contributions to the Union Square farmers market purchasing food as an immediate way to help.
(this week: Tuesday 13th in Grand Central Graybar corridor from 12-3, Wednesday 14th Columbus Circle uptown 1 platform 12-3), Thursday 15th WhiteHall SI ferry terminal 3-6, Friday Nov 16th at Union SQ 12-3)
I have been singing with the Music Under NY program since 1999, I sang throughout the 9-11 disaster and find comfort in being able to provide music in public spaces. Now through the contributions of commuters I have a wonderful way to help.
