Harmony for Haiti

A Health for Haiti team is headed back to Haiti this July and, in addition to some water system upgrades and a professional development workshop for teachers, plans to offer a three day music camp for about 250 children in Grande Saline, Haiti. The camp will feature US and Haitian music and will be a collaboration between SUNY Broome faculty and students in the US and teachers and students in Haiti. As part of the Harmony for Haiti program, SUNY Broome music students recently recorded five songs in the SUNY Broome recording studio. The recordings will be used to teach the songs (and hand movements) to the children in Haiti. A special thanks to Music Professors Brenda Dawe and Peter Sicilian, and to their awesome students who worked so hard and did an amazing job selecting, arranging, and performing the songs. And special thanks to Health for Haiti veteran Silvia Briga for filming the songs.  In addition to singing, the students in Haiti will work with Professor Marcia Blackburn to make some simple percussion instruments. On the final day of the program there will be a performance and a party.

Please come and support the SUNY Broome Music Association and the Harmony for Haiti project at a concert featuring Contemporary Music. Broadway, Pop, Rap and Jazz. The concert will be at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, May 17th in the Angelo Zuccolo Little Theater. At the concert, donations accepted for Health for Haiti, and there will be a special performance as part of our Harmony for Haiti project. Thank you!
