12-12-12 wasn’t the only event that made music for Robin Hood’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
Recently, the Gregorian Family, consisting of Ara Gregorian Resnick (Violin), Alicia Gregorian Sawyers (Cello), Ani Gregorian (Violin) and Tom Sauer (Piano), put their prowess in classical music to work holding two private concerts at the Sohotel Artspace Gallery in lower Manhattan. With decades of classical music experience among them, the family together performed works by the likes of Bach, Rachmaninoff, Piazolla, Gregorian, Dvorak and Moszkowski and raised over $7,500 in donations to help families and individuals devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The Gallery, dedicated to increasing awareness for European artists in America, was filled with young music students, many studying under Ani, and their parents who came out to do their part to help their neighbors recover from the storm.
Thanks to the Gregorian Family and all those who attended for helping to make our community a better place!
