Actions speak louder than words….but taking action is a lot more fun when you add music to the mix. Just ask the crew at Educational Travel Adventures (ETA) and Believe NYC. On Sunday, May 22nd, ETA and Believe NYC will team up to support the Northern Jersey Autism Speaks Walk. They don’t just talk the talk and walk the walk…they also sing some darn good music along the way. Believe NYC Artistic Director Jacque Carnahan is guaranteed to brighten up your day with her rich and lively soprano sound. She will be joined by the accomplished Assaf Gleizner on the piano and Bjorn Ingelstam on trumpet. They will perform together on the main stage – giving you one more reason to walk for this noteworthy cause.
Jacque Carnahan is also heading up the Arts for Autism Benefit Concert on June 20th at the Gershwin Theater. The event, hosted by…wait for it….Tony-Award Winning Star Kelli O’Hara!…will feature music from your favorite Broadway stars to raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks. Carnahan believes that music has the power to go beyond mere entertainment and can make a lasting impact on a person’s life. You can make an impact, too, by stepping up and joining them at the Arts for Autism Walk. Make sure you stop by the Arts for Autism Booth to buy your tickets for the Benefit, or enter their raffle for a chance to win free tickets!
The Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest fundraising event in the autism community. Your support can help raise awareness and money to finance new research projects and provide a wide range of services to people in the autism community and their families. Join ETA and Believe NYC from 11:00am to 1:00pm at the MetLife Stadium for a memorable performance. Step by step, note by note, help join the movement!
