Performers include South Asian musicians, dancers, and singers, plus Yale Symphony Orchestra, Yale Concert Band, Yale Glee Club
Devastating floods in Pakistan have left millions of people hurt or homeless. In response to the crisis, the Yale community will present “Help Can’t Wait: Pakistan,” a benefit concert for flood relief, on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 7 pm.
The concert will be held in Woolsey Hall, corner of College and Grove streets. The program will include performances by the Yale Symphony Orchestra, Yale Concert Band and Yale Glee Club, and student and professional South Asian musicians, dancers, and singers.
The suggested donation for concert tickets is $20/$10 students. All contributions will go to the Pakistan Flood Relief effort — specifically Karachi Relief, UNICEF and the International Federation of the Red Cross. These organizations already have a presence in Pakistan and have begun the work of delivering humanitarian aid, services, and supplies.
Tickets can be purchased at the Yale School of Music box office at Sprague Memorial Hall, 470 College St. Monday through Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm. Tickets also are available at music.yale.edu/concerts. In addition, tickets will be sold in the lobby of Woolsey Hall beginning at 6 p.m. on the evening of the event. MORE
