St. Peter’s Health Partners and Sock Out Cancer are proud to present a benefit concert featuring the internationally renowned ensemble William Close and The Earth Harp Collective. The stunning centerpiece of the concert will be the Earth Harp—an instrument invented and created by William Close. The Earth Harp’s giant strings will run from the stage out over the audience, transforming the theatre into an instrument and allowing the audience to experience the music literally from within the instrument. According to an article published in The New York Times, “It’s like sitting inside a giant cello.”
You won’t want to miss this amazing musical experience. And even more important, net proceeds from the concert will go to the foundations of Albany Medical Center and St. Peter’s Hospital to assist financially distressed families right here in our own community so they can focus all their efforts on winning their battle against cancer.
