Music Kitchen Food for the Soul will present a concert for New York City’s homeless on Wednesday, December 12 at Turning Point Youth Shelter in Brooklyn.
The program will feature the vocal sextet Overboard. The group is based in Boston, and performs a cappella covers of popular contemporary pop/rock artists and standards. Their website is at http://www.overboardvocals.com/.
Music Kitchen Food for the Soul performances are not public concerts but rather in-house concerts for the shelter clients. All guests must please RSVP to Music Kitchen Founder and Director Kelly Hall-Tompkins at MusicKitchenNYC@aol.com.
Kelly Hall-Tompkins (http://www.kellyhall-tompkins.com) founded Music Kitchen Food for the Soul in March of 2005 in order to bring musicians together to share the inspirational, therapeutic, evocative and uplifting power of chamber music with New York City’s disenfranchised homeless shelter population. Music Kitchen is based at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Shelter on 65th Street and Central Park West. Their performances are designed to be accessible, interactive and informative so that the listeners will come away with an emotional connection to the music and a familiarity with the context from which the composer wrote the works. They have been the subjects of articles in The New York Times, Chamber Music magazine and Spirituality & Health, among many other print, broadcast and online publications.
