SINGING MCCARTNEY TO HELP CHILDREN

The music of Paul McCartney will be performed by the likes of Graham Nash, Natalie Merchant and Lake Street Dive at the 18th annual "Music Of" benefit concert to raise funds for music-education programs.

Produced by Michael Dorf Presents, the concert will take place 3/15 at Carnegie Hall. Also on the bill are Allison Russell, Bettye LaVette, Peter Asher, Ingrid Michaelson, Glen Hansard, Lyle Lovett, The Cactus Blossoms, Shovels & Rope, Sammy Rae and Jonathan Russell of The Head and the Heart.

“We have missed doing this during the pandemic and looking forward to this special night,” Dorf said. “Of course, we will miss Rita Houston of WFUV, our longtime MC, who passed from a battle with cancer and to whom we will also be paying tribute this year. Christine Stone of SiriusXM will be joining us this year.”

Previous "Music Of" tributes have sold out and raised approximately $100k per show for Music Will (formally Little Kids Rock), Young Audiences NY, FIXS, Church Street School of Music, The Center for Arts Education, DAddario Foundation, Sonic Arts for All, Save the Music, Midori & Friends, Grammy in the Schools, the Orchestra Now and Newport Jazz Kids.
