MUSIC FOR PEACE: SHALOM ZONE, featuring students from the Juilliard ARTreach Program

SHALOM ZONE (MUSIC FOR PEACE) FUNDRAISER will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church 1329 Jackson Ave. on MARCH 3, 2013 at 5pm. Their performance will include MUSIC, DANCE, AND DRAMA. You will be entertained with music and dance genres ranging from the classical to jazz to contemporary and comedy routine.

This event is to help SHALOM ZONE COMMUNITY, Inc. a non-profit community-based program located in CENTRAL CITY that provide opportunities for children and youth, ages 5-13, to experience other cultural arts events that help to develop their social and educational awareness so that they will begin to realize they can channel their emotions and energy into the arts while also building self-esteem.

This student organization from Juilliard will be returning for their seventh year since Hurricane Katrina to work with SHALOM ZONE as a community service project.

Please come out and support these very dedicated and talented students who not only share their talents with the children and youth here in New Orleans, but also work with Habitat for Humanity while here. La Toya Cantrell, Councilwoman from Council District B will present a proclamation to them for their years of service to our city.

Cheryl Landrieu will be the emcee.
