We rejoiced together. We had cake, fine wine, and delicious food.
We did this together and we raised some money.
Thanks to all who attended our birthday celebration and benefit, in recognition of our Founder and Artistic Director, Patricia Nicholson Parker. If you were there, you experienced the heart of this community. In performing, the musicians exhibited a depth, commitment, and a unified statement in support for the woman who started it all and has continued to make it happen, staying strong, for decades.
We are grateful to New York City Councilmember Carlina Rivera, her chief of staff Pedro Carrillo, and staff member Sheila Rodriguez for presenting Patricia with a citation in recognition of her work in service to the cultural community, and the community at large.
