Skokie Theatre
Skokie, Illinois
Friday, 27 October 2017 - 8:00 PM
Skokie Theatre is proud to present some of our favorite performers, who are donating their time and talents to raise money for humanitarian relief. This benefit concert features Judy Rossignuolo-Rice, Bernard Rice, Carla Gordon, Russ Goeltenbodt, Jan Slavin, and Denise McGowan Tracy. Also featuring Carmen Severino (a singer of Puerto Rican heritage), Skokie Idol finalist Julianne Epperson Arvizu, and renowned singer TAKESHA MESHÉ KIZART (Sister Africa). Music direction by Mark Burnell.

Skokie Theatre Executive Director Wendy Kaplan was trapped for ten days in Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria ravaged the U. S. territory. She witnessed first-hand how badly the inhabitants of the island need medical supplies, food, water, shelter, and the other basics of survival in order to rebuild their lives and communities.

Please join us for evening of reflection, song, and commitment to help the men, women, and children in desperate need on the island.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Hispanic Federation's Unidos: Disaster Relief and Recovery Program to Support Puerto Rico, and United for Puerto Rico with the purpose of providing aid and support to the victims of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.

is worthy of all superlatives. With a breathtaking mastery and unflinching portrayals... a vocal flexibility that enables her to acutely pass from a tearful murmur to a firm luminosity. And her dramatic intelligence is worthy of the great "lionesses" of the lyric theater. An artist whose international career is still at its dawning, this young and beautiful American should reach the summit quickly. Provided, of course, that she preserves the incandescent glow that currently emanates from her every word and gesture.
