Wonderful World Gala: Past Events

The Wonderful World annual gala, hosted by Wonderful World: Friends of Music Therapy Inc (WWFMT), honors the legacy of Louis Armstrong and his commitment to bettering the lives of others through music. The event recognizes both a dynamic group of individuals, who are chosen from a variety of fields of music, medicine, and philantrophy, and our beneficiary, The Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine (LACMM).


Wonderful World 2019 Honorees

The evening will include a reception that will be sonically animated by one of the leading timbales artists in Tropical Music and Latin Jazz today, Tito Rodríguez, Jr. ( join us on the dance floor ); a silent auction; and an opening Broadway musical revue by Bruce Sabath from the Broadway production, Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish. Masters of Ceremony for the program are Mercedes Ellington and Bill Daughtry, with music performances from saxophonist Erik Lawrence and the Garry Dial Trio, plus a memorable award presentation for our honorees: GRAMMY Award winning bassist/composer and the host of NPR's Jazz Night in America, Christian McBride, who will be receiving the Phoebe Jacobs Award; the prolific composer, conductor, and French hornist, David Amram, who will be receiving our Lifetime Achievement Award; Deborah Korzenik, Senior Associate General Counsel of the Mount Sinai Health System, who will be honored for her work in patient care and medical ethics; and artist Julia Justo, who will be honored for her incredible artistry and resilience as music therapy patient.
