We love finding creative, new places to share our music outside of the concert hall.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 9, 2010
Baby B Strings (Belinda Ho, violin; Veronica Dicker, viola; Lisa Espinosa, cello) recently announced their debut performance dates: a pair of back to back concerts that will benefit Miami’s local community. On October 22nd, they will be performing at an event co-sponsored by internationally renowned art collector and author Martin Margulies and the Sundari Foundation entitled Heart Happening, which will be held at the Margulies Art Warehouse. All proceeds will benefit the Lotus House, which serves women and children in need. The next night, October 23, 2010, Baby B Strings will play at the Miami Beach Arts Gala at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The Gala will honor Miami arts luminaries Michael Tilson Thomas, Judy Drucker and Dr. Sanford L. Ziff.
Baby B Strings has played in venues that don’t typically host classical musicians, including Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Churchill’s Pub, and Wholefoods Market. Violinist Belinda Ho founded Baby B Strings with a mission to reach new audiences by performing in unconventional spaces.
Baby B Strings created the music program at the Lotus House, which provides monthly concerts to its residents. “Baby B Strings has orchestrated a truly delightful concert series at the Lotus House Women’s Shelter this past year, offering an important alternative pathway to healing and uplifting the spirits of the homeless women and children we serve,” said Constance Margulies, founder of the Lotus House. “We are deeply grateful!”
The ensemble enjoys sharing their musical talents with those who are not regular classical concertgoers. Says Miss Ho, “We love finding creative, new places to share our music outside of the concert hall.”
