“Classical Paws,” a one-time-only benefit concert performance with all proceeds going to service, rescue and companion dogs in need of funding for orthopedic and medical care, takes place Jan. 19, 2007 at the Settlement Music School in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia-based husband and wife classical music duo of soprano Jody Karin Applebaum and pianist Marc-André Hamelin have designed the evening of cabaret and light classical music.
Proceeds will benefit Orthodogs’ Silver Lining Foundation, an all volunteer, Internet-based nonprofit organization providing financial assistance for essential medical treatments for dogs, including service dogs that assist disabled people.
Tickets include entrance to both the concert and a post-concert reception with the musicians, as well as a complemintary CD from the artists.
“I have two lucky dogs that have each had their own orthopedic needs taken care of quickly,” Jody Karin Applebaum revealed. “During that time, I learned of OSLF’s work with shelter and beloved companion dogs whose medical treatment could not take place without financial assistance.”
“Orthodogs’ Silver Lining Foundation is a small organization trying to fill a big need. Marc and I knew we wanted to help, and we knew that Philadelphians would open their hearts to this organization,” she said.
General admission tickets for the event are $50, with special rates for seniors and students. For more information about the OLSF, visit http://www.oslf.org. For concert info or to purchase tickets, call (215) 925-9341 or visit http://www.classicalpaws.org
