“Dear Haiti: Notes of Peace and Compassion” Benefit Concert Feb. 21

In honor of the visit to FAU of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Hoot/Wisdom Recordings, FAU’s student-operated record label, is presenting a night of art and music aimed at raising continued support for the Haitian earthquake relief effort. “Dear Haiti: Notes of Peace and Compassion” will showcase a mixture of FAU musicians and artists. Sandra Devoe, project coordinator for Food For The Poor, the largest international relief and development organization in the United States, will also participate.  
The event will take place on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the University Theater on the Boca Raton campus. Artwork donated by select FAU artists will be presented and then sold in a silent auction. Music groups from FAU will present their “letters of compassion” in the form of original musical stylings. Hoot/Wisdom Recording artists Danny B and Marcus Banks will headline the event. Other acts will include a jazz-fusion combo led by FAU graduate student Kiki Sanchez and original orchestral works of sophomore music student Alton Terry. There will be donation boxes as well as letter-writing stations for attendees who would like to send their own messages to the earthquake victims. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Food For The Poor. For more information, call 561- 929-2340 or send an email to swinikof@fau.edu.
