The concert, set to begin at 8 PM, will benefit the FEED Foundation with a goal to raise enough money in one evening to provide one million school meals through FEED. Former President Bill Clinton will make a special appearance.
Performers include singers John Legend and Natasha Bedingfield, New York Philharmonic conductor Alan Gilbert, violist David Aaron Carpenter and National Symphony Orchestra conductor and pianist Christoph Eschenbach. The featured orchestra will be the Salomé Chamber Orchestra.
