A Limited Engagement Spring Concert Series to Benefit THE HARMONY PROGRAM
Music Education for New York City’s Underprivileged Children – Cadden Jones returns to the stage, headlining a limited engagement spring concert series to benefit The Harmony Program, a not-for-profit music education organization. Broadway composer/conductor Phil Hall is Musical Director and Aimee Francis directs.
CADDEN JONES — THE GLORY OF LOVE is a gritty, fresh and comedic glimpse at the ‘urban evolution’ of a modern young woman adjusting to life in Manhattan. A lighthearted and swift 60-minute cabaret celebration of battling conformity and using music as a means to do so, the commercial and print queen of Manhattan and lead soloist for the USO Liberty Belles confronts everything from school bullying and father/daughter dynamics to the discovery of men, sex and gay bff’s!
A polished and poised exterior collides with the raw emotions of an everyday twenty-something against the backdrop of timeless songs like “Fever,” “Being Alive,” “Get Happy/Happy Days are Here Again,” “Bewitched,” “Side by Side,” “The Glory of Love,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and more! Special guests include Ryan Murray (Lone Star Love), Linda Sue Moshier and Alecia Evans of Nobody’s Business, and children from the charitable organization, Harmony Program, which proceeds to the event will benefit. Please note there is NO drink minimum for this special show.
“The Harmony Program is very pleased to be collaborating with Cadden Jones,” said Anne Fitzgibbon, founder and Executive Director of the Harmony Program. “By dedicating her performances to the Harmony Program, she is helping bring music making and its many benefits into the lives of more of the city’s children.”
The Harmony Program provides daily after-school music lessons to children from economically disadvantaged communities. Harmony’s unique model taps the city’s college and graduate-level music students as teachers, training them to develop the talents of young people who would not ordinarily be exposed to music education. Participating New York City school children are provided with musical instruments, daily after-school music classes, and cultural events… all free of charge.
