This is Important! You can help orchestras feed America!

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra
is taking part in Orchestras Feeding America, a national food
drive organized by the League of American Orchestras, Feeding
America and Participant Media. The effort is inspired by the
upcoming film The Soloist, (watch trailer here–awesome…) a story that reminds us that classical music has the power to sustain spirits and change lives, even under the most difficult circumstances. The NJSO is using that power to make an even greater difference in our communities—to feed both body and soul.
The NJSO will be collecting non-perishable food items at all of its concerts from March 20–April 5, 2009. All items will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Located in
Hillside, the Community FoodBank assists three-quarters of a million low-income people in 18 counties throughout Northern and Central New Jersey.
Audiences and community members may drop off food donations at the following NJSO concert sites:
Newark: NJ Performing Arts Center, 1 Center St.
Saturday, March 21 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Tuesday, March 24 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
