I am exceedingly proud to be on the board of trustees of a phenomenal Massachusetts' organization called The Food Project.
I am especially looking forward to the evening of Saturday, March 13th when the Longwood Symphony Orchestra, composed primarily of Boston area medical professionals, is playing a concert to benefit The Food Project.
The LSO's mission is "to perform concerts of musical diversity and excellence, while supporting health-related nonprofit organizations through public performances," and the March 13th concert promises to be marvelous. Featuring solo violinist Tai Murray, the program includes Debussy, Ginastera, and Barber.
I'm no connoisseur of classical music, but my mother is and she took one look at the program, and declared it "wonderful!"
BONUS: A Cleveland Orchestra performance of Debussy's La Mer is available for download on archive.org.
If you are interested in attending or making a donation, go here or click on the invitation below (designed by Erin at Cambridge-based Fyfe Design who has done a lot of great work for The Food Project, as seen here and here. Fyfe was also kind enough to loan me the flourishes they used in the invite so I could use them for the response card.):
As a board member who doesn't have a ton of money to give away, I am always looking for ways to use my time and talents to benefit the organization. To this end, I designed the four program pages allotted us, a poster for the lobby, and an information card (see first image) that we will use to collect people's mailing info and, hopefully, their donations.
