I am traveling to NYC with the Me/2 Orchestra for performances this week. This is Mental Illness Awareness Week and we are partnering with both Neurocrine and Sing for Hope to bring music and positive mental health messages to Manhattan on Thursday-Friday!
Here is our schedule for Thursday, October 7:
12:30 pm on Lincoln Center plaza
This is the unveiling of a new sculpture by renowned artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada. The sculpture is a continuation of Neurocrine’s “Monumental Moments” campaign, recognizing the importance of mental health during the pandemic. Me2/ will provide music as the sculpture is revealed and media interviews take place (roughly 30 minutes). There won’t be any audience seating as this is staged for the media only, but people are welcomed to stop and listen.
5:00 pm at 28 Liberty
Our partners at the NYC-based organization, Sing for Hope, are known for such large-scale projects as their artist-designed pianos placed throughout greater NYC, as well as bringing music to the masses receiving vaccinations at the Javits Center earlier this year. Me2/ is proud to be partnering with Sing for Hope on a public performance on the plaza outside 28 Liberty this Thursday, inspired by Mental Illness Awareness Week. There will be seating available.
We are awaiting confirmation of a potential ‘pop-up’ performance at a transportation hub on Friday as well.
