Classic Arts News   Habitat for Humanity's Rebuilding Efforts for Gulf Coast Get Boost From Detroit Symphony
 
The Detroit Symphony is raising funds for Habitat for Humanity's disaster relief and rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Katrina.

All Detroit Symphony concerts from the beginning of the season through mid-October will promote and solicit funds for Habitat for Humanity's program "Operation Home Delivery," a rebuilding plan for New Orleans and other Gulf Coast areas affected by the hurricane.

Two performances by saxophonist Branford Marsalis and vocalist Harry Connick Jr., both of them New Orleans natives, have been rescheduled from earlier this month for September 29 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Marsalis is honorary chair of Habitat for Humanity's New Orleans relief efforts, and Connick is honorary chair of Operation Home Delivery.

A portion of the proceeds from CD sales at the Marsalis-Connick performances will be donated to Habitat Detroit, which is providing transitional housing for Gulf Coast evacuees in the Detroit area.
