Music for Food is a Boston-based musicians’ initiative for hunger relief that recognizes that the power of music can call forth the best in human beings and can inspire both awareness and action. Music for Food was established by NEC faculty Kim Kashkashian on a model inspired by Carol Rodland’s Rochester-based “If Music be the Food…” This season, Music for Food concerts will be exploring the chamber music of Antonín Dvořák paired with classic Lieder.
Each Music for Food benefit concert brings gifted young artists and internationally celebrated musicians together to inspire audiences to pass on the musical gift they receive. Audiences are asked to become a partner by helping to nourish those in our community who struggle to feed their families by donating either a non-perishable food item or a monetary gift as their income permits. 100% of contributions go to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
