Dear Friends,

 

I hope this message finds you well.

 

Now more than ever, we need to stand together. A plan has been proposed calling for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts (N.E.A.).  The N.E.A. was established in 1965 by congress to provide funding for arts programming, especially at small and medium sized arts centers, such as Flushing Town Hall. 

 

As concerned artists and cultural advocates, the volunteer members of the Chinese Cultural Committee of Flushing Town Hall, are holding a benefit concert on Friday, July 28, 2017.   This will be a grassroots effort calling for support from all our community members to financially safeguard our cultural gem of Queens – Flushing Town Hall - a registered historic landmark that has provided thousands of concerts, workshops, theatre works, dances, and exhibitions, since 1990. We want to help Flushing Town Hall further its mission and now we turn to you for your participation.

                                                                                                                                   

You are cordially invited to submit the online submission form with the best musical performance from your school to participate in this benefit concert. Due to time constraints, only those selected will be confirmed to perform at the concert. However, everyone is welcome to purchase tickets and/or sponsorships for the concert. You may order your tickets by visiting www.flushingtownhall.org or fill out this online request form. To acknowledge your generous participation in this unprecedented occasion, Flushing Town Hall will provide certificates for your school, the performers, and the sponsors. The selection of the performers will be conducted with consultation from members of New Asia Chamber Music Society.

 

The deadline for all submissions is Friday, June 23 at 5:00PM. The list of selected performers will be announced on Flushing Town Hall’s designated web page for this concert. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Michael Liu, Director of Chinese Community Initiatives, at mliu@flushingtownhall.org or at 718-463-7700 Ext. 228.

 

We look forward to your support. Let us celebrate the power of music together!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Minwen Yang
