The show will take place at Riverside Church in New York City on Saturday June 3. A number of the program's composers are expected to attend. It is not yet known if Paul will be in attendance.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, in three price ranges:
$100.00 - Best seats, includes a souvenir program
$30.00 - Obstructed view (for listening only)
For those unfamiliar, "a Garland for Linda" is a brand new program of choral classical music featuring works by 9 of Britain's top modern composers, including Paul McCartney, who contributed a new piece, "Nova." The program premiered in England last summer, with Paul and all of the other composers in attendance. Performances of "Garland" benefits The Garland Appeal, which helps with cancer research programs. The Garland Appeal was founded by Stephen Connock, himself a cancer survivor, who also organized "a Garland for Linda." Information about The Garland Appeal and how to make donations can be found on the Appeal's brand new website, at:
"a Garland for Linda" was released on CD in England on February 7 and will be coming out in the U.S. April 25 on EMI Classics.
