The Times Union published an article on an upcoming benefit concert at the Palace Theatre with the internationally renowned ensemble, William Close and the Earth Harp Collective.
The concert is being presented by Sock Out Cancer, a nonprofit that raises funds to help families dealing with cancer pay for everyday expenses such as food, gas cards, and utilities. Net proceeds from the event will go jointly to the foundations of St. Peter’s Hospital and Albany Medical Center.
Dr. Kyle Denniston, a radiation oncologist at St. Peter’s Hospital Cancer Care Center, discussed how fundraising efforts like these are vital to the cancer community.
“This financial … burden that’s placed on our cancer patients is one that has been ignored and … (is often) overlooked.” Relief offered by fundraising charities like Sock Out Cancer, he said, “really are crucial to providing the support and financial stability for patients when they are going through … their most difficult days.”
The concert, to be held on Tuesday, May 8, will feature the world’s largest string instrument, the Earth Harp. The harp consists of illuminated strings suspended above the audience and an on-stage resonating chamber.
