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
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
these sometimes difficult times".
