School of Music to benefit Breast Cancer Alliance

Twelve acclaimed musicians will perform musical selections to benefit the Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) in Greenwich at the Connecticut School of Music’s All-Star Faculty Concert in Westport on Saturday, May 10 at 1 p.m.

The concert is in memory of Greenwich Public School teacher and cellist Constance E. Barrett. All of the proceeds will go towards the BCA.

Founded in 2000 by world renowned cellist and Juilliard graduate and School of Music president Kenneth Kuo, the school has been guiding quality musicians for more than 10 years, offering lessons in viola, violin, piano, flute, guitar, cello, trombone, sax, trumpet, clarinet and voice. The school offers private lessons to students of all ages and abilities. Faculty members hail from institutions such as Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, Yale, William Patterson University, SUNY Purchase College, and the Royal Academy of Music. They have performed at venues worldwide and with orchestras including the New Jersey Symphony Pops Orchestra, Boston Symphony and more. The BCA was established in 1996 by Mary Watterman, a woman diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. The BCA’s mission is to improve survival rates and quality of life to those impacted by breast cancer through better prevention, early detection, treatment and cure. To support these goals, funds are invested in innovative research, breast surgery fellowships, regional education, dignified screening for the uninsured and underserved. More than $19 million in grants have been awarded through the organization.

Tickets are $15 per person. For more information, contact Megan Zboray at [email protected] or 203-226-0805. The concert will be held at the Unitarian Church of Westport at 10 Lyons Plains Road, Westport.
