VC LIVE | Music for Food "Cincinnati Chapter Online Spotlight"

All proceeds from the concert benefit the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank


We’re coming to you from Cincinnati for a special “Music For Food Cincinnati Chapter Online Spotlight” concert.

Featuring the Ariel Quartet and musicians from the University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music performing works by Bartók, Brahms, Saariaho, and Lyatoshynsky, all proceeds raised from today’s stream will benefit the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank. Watch the concert here.

It is estimated that 1 in 9 people in the United States struggle with food insecurity, and Music for Food’s concerts, to date, have raised funds to create more than 1.5 million meals.
