Local Music Academy Hits a High Note For Charity 5/5/18

On May 5th, singers, musicians and a live band will be featured at The Pop Music Academy Spring Showcase at The Ridgefield Playhouse at 80 East Ridge Road in Ridgefield, CT. In addition to being a fun live music event for the whole family, the performance raises money and awareness for local Stamford charity, Hope in Harmony. Hope in Harmony is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses music to help and heal those in need within the community by providing various educational and therapeutic programs directly into the neighborhoods where those people reside. Programming also aids in improving quality of life, access to arts and culture, and raising awareness for the many health benefits that music supports. Pop Music Academy Artistic Director and Founder of Hope in Harmony, Christine Occhino, says, “Nothing brings us greater joy than to share the healing power of music with our students, supporters, and especially the children in our community who need it most. This night of family-friendly entertainment is something we look forward to every year, and we’re so glad that we have the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for this very special cause.” Doors open at 6:30pm with red carpet photographs, followed by the Showcase Performance at 7:30pm. Reduced pre- sale tickets starting at just $15 can be purchased online at ThePopMusicAcademy.com, or by calling The Ridgefield Playhouse Box Office at 203-438-5795. General admission the night of the show is $25 at the door. To contribute directly to the cause and for more information on Hope in Harmony, please visit HopeinHarmony.org.
