A musical good deed
Concert pianist Jeffrey Biegel, Lynbrook resident, plays Island Harvest benefit
From the great stages of Carnegie Hall, to London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and the first live video concert online, pianist Jeffrey Biegel reached out to his native Long Island neighbors afflicted by Hurricane Sandy.
On Saturday, Dec. 8 at 2pm, pianist Biegel performed a concert at the Lynbrook Public Library to benefit Island Harvest, helping many people still struggling from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
His program included classical favorites, laced with well known holiday selections featured on his recent #1 holiday CD, “A Steinway Christmas Album. The event raised over $800 for Island Harvest.
“It’s nice to know that the communities joined together to support this much needed organization,” said Biegel, “ ... I was happy to share my music in the process of raising funds and awareness for the still many victims of the post-hurricane relief efforts.”
