Friends of Music Education for Haiti, Inc. will present a benefit concert featuring the blind Haitian violinist, Romel Joseph, and his children, violinist and violist, Victoria Joseph, and pianist Bradley Joseph. They will perform music by Faure, Chopin, Dvorak, Vitali, Moszkowski, and a few of Romel Josephâ€™s arrangements of traditional Haitian music. All of the proceeds from this concert will fund the Friends of Music Education for Haitiâ€™s project, to build Haitiâ€™s first professional music conservatory and performing arts center, for children.
Romel Joseph, the Juilliard-trained Haitian violinist who survived the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12th
2010, is the Executive Director of Friends of Music Education for Haiti. His remarkable ordeal captivated audiences around the world through numerous media reports in the Miami Herald, the Washington Post, London Times, CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, BBC, and CNN. Legendary musician, Stevie Wonder, honored Mr. Joseph by presenting him with his personal keyboard during a live interview on CNN.
All proceeds of this concert will benefit the construction of Haiti’s first music conservatory and performing arts center for children. Romel Joseph, its Executive Director and earthquake survivor who’s story of survival was featured nationally, is proud to present his daughter’s debut recital with hopes to raise for this incredible project. First Presbyterian Church has donated the use of their sanctuary for this event and we hope to reach out to the community for their involvement and support.
