Internationally-acclaimed classical/rock violinist Daisy Jopling
will perform with her band on Saturday, March 19, 2011 at 8pm at the Paramount Center for the Performing Arts, Peekskill, NY. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to benefit the Peekskill Education Foundation, Hendrick Hudson Community Education Foundation and the Paramount Center's Arts In Education Program. In addition, the Hendrick Hudson High School Treble Makers, a choral group made up of young women, will perform in the show.
Daisy is also spotlighting some of the Hudson Valley's best young local talent including tap dancer/musician/actor Marcus Carl Franklin, Dance Expression of Westchester, and stage performer/singer Gabriela Sansone. Legendary musician/composer/conductor David Amram
will also perform.
Tickets are on sale now for $25 and $35. For $50, a special meet and greet with the artist after the show is included. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Paramount at 1008 Brown Street, Peekskill, NY during normal business hours or online at paramountcenter.org. Limited tickets are also available at the Paradise Restaurant, 135 Broadway, Verplanck NY and Yorktown Cycles, 1899 Commerce Street, Yorktown Heights, NY. There will be a free open rehearsal at 4pm for children of all ages.
As a Peekskill resident, I want to share my love of music, spotlight some of our best up-and-coming talent, and give something back to the local community. By donating some of the proceeds to three worthwhile educational programs, I hope to encourage young people to explore the amazing world of music and the performing arts. School districts are facing enormous financial challenges, and if we can help to fund and encourage students to pursue their musical dreams, I want to help," said Daisy.
Daisy began her solo career performing a concerto at the Royal Albert Hall in London at the age of 14. Since then she has toured the world, recorded the music for the Hollywood Films Spanglish" and The Road to El Dorado," signed to BMG RCA Victor, and recorded six albums. After opening the Vienna Festival before 30,000 people, she is currently on tour with the Daisy Jopling Band playing modern arrangements of great classical pieces. March 19 is St. Joseph's day, so she will be celebrating the Italian composers.
