Measures of Hope – Counseling in Schools 2022 Ron Carter Quartet Spring Benefit Concert with Jon Batiste
May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Counseling In Schools (CIS) is proud to present our first annual Measures of Hope Spring Benefit. Join us on Thursday May 19, 2022 at the New York Society for Ethical Culture in New York City as we celebrate the power of creative arts therapy programs in our schools. For those unable to attend in-person, tickets to view via livestream are available to purchase. Please note for in person attendees, COVID-19 proof of vaccination will be required.
The evening will feature a student art exhibit, a performance by legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter and his Foursight Quartet, the presentation of the first-ever CIS “Measures of Hope Award,” and a cocktail hour with our honoree, Maestro Carter! Maestro Ron Carter will be presented the Measure of Hope Award for his career as an inspirational educator and there will be a special video appearance from Jon Batiste.
The Measures of Hope benefit will also recognize Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation and its Head of Corporate Responsibility and Executive Director, Alessandra Digiusto, with our Vision of Hope Award. Along with Deutsche Bank’s generous sponsorship of this event, we are thrilled to acknowledge the significant contributions the Foundation and Alessandra have made over many years to our programs that support students living in temporary housing.
During the evenings performance Maestro Carter will dedicate “Saguaro,” his composition from 1977’s “Piccolo” to CIS in honor of our work inspiring hope and healing in NYC school communities.
