Jun 6, 2010 - Song for Haiti, a benefit concert at St Joseph Cathedral in Hartford, CT, to support the rebuilding of the New Victorian School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Romel Joseph, a survivor of the devastating earthquake in Haiti and Executive Director of New Victorian School, was on hand for the concert played to a supportive audience of more than 1,000 music lovers. In a conversation prior to the concert, Mr. Joseph told me he was committed to bringing hope to the children of Haiti through music and education. During the concert, he was honored by the reading of a declaration from CT Governor Jody Rell proclaiming June 6, 2010, Romel Joseph Day. Event Chair, Dr. Ezequiel Menendez commented that "The Holy Spirit was definitely present today." Many, many people dedicated time, talent and resources to the Hartford Concerts for Charities fund raising event including artist from Hartford Symphony Orchestra, New Haven Symphony Orchestra, Hartford Chorale, CONCORA, Voce, New Britain Chorale, Cathedral Choir of St Joseph, Center Church Choir, Asylum Hill Congregational Church Choir, South Church Chancel Choir, vocal and instrumental soloist, Hartt School Community Division, and Spectrum in Motion Dance Ensemble. The performance within the beautiful venue of St Joseph Cathedral was spectacular. The centerpiece of the concert was Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 ("Ode to Joy"), and other works included Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus", "Largo" from Dvorák's Symphony No. 9, Randall Thompson's "Alleluia," a work for organ and brass, and an interfaith hymn. Conducting the orchestra and choir were William Boughton (New Haven Symphony), Richard Coffey (CONCORA), and Edward Cumming (Hartford Symphony). Event website: http://hccsongforhaiti.org/
