Hurricane Sandy Relief Benefit Concert

Believe In Music Studio, a Fair Lawn-based music school directed by Marina Belkin, raised $1,755.00 for victims of those affected by Hurricane Sandy. When pictures and stories surfaced of the devastated areas, the Studio used music as a rallying cry to unite music-lovers and families alike. It raised awareness and funds for the cause; deciding to partner with the Robin Hood Foundation (which also organized the 12/12/12 charity concert). As a result, the Studio organized a benefit concert, which was held on December 16th at the Fair Lawn Jewish Center. The concert drew over 200 people and featured over 20 performers.

The concert host was David Belkin, a local talented pianist who also performed at the event. David has previously at the Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and various international competitions. This night, he graced the crowd with his first hand stories of fundraising in the blistering cold with Alice Loukianova (a friend who also  performed) and his mom. "The $70 we raised was a great motivation to making a difference in every way and level that we could". In addition to the musical portion, the concert also held a bake sale and nail design station; all of these also helped to the fundraising effort and added a greater community feel to the event. Each participant was helping in their own towards a greater goal.

This was the second benefit concert Believe In Music Studio has hosted in the wake of a tragedy. In 2005, right after Hurricane KAtrina devastated the New Orleans area, the Studio reached out to Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation through which they raised $2,000 to help musicians displaced by the Hurricane. The Studio also tries to balance these performances with recitals in senior centers and assisted living homes and book drives and collections for local charities. "It feels good to give back," said David Belkin.  "I am glad that I have music  as a means to unite people and to see the brighter side in these sometimes difficult times".
