A Piece for Peace: A smashing success!

Monday night saw Tanenbaum at the gorgeous Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, where we presented A Piece for Peace, a night of music and reflection.

The venerable Sir Gilbert Levine, famed conductor and collaborator with the late Pope John Paul II on “concerts of reconciliation” spoke powerfully at a special reception prior to the performance, explaining the importance of openness to the “other” in interfaith work, the connections between the universal language of music and peace, and his relationship with our namesake, Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum.

Sir Gilbert also introduced our performer, 16-year-old prodigy Conrad Tao, who dazzled a packed house with a program that included Bach, Debussy, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky and his own award-winning compositions.

Tanenbaum thanks everyone who was able to join us for this very special evening; special thanks go to our Event Committee, Adam Smith, Susan FIlan and Mary Jane Brock, and to our co-chairs for the evening, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, Kathryn and John Hart, Mona Aboelnaga Kanaan, and Richard Smith and Mirinda Page.

We’d love it if you’d leave us a comment letting us know about your experience. You can also check out some photos of the night.

Thanks again to everyone who made Monday night as wonderful as it was!
