Live Streams: Ron Carter Foursight Quartet Spring Benefit Concert

We are now heading into the new normal with live music during the Covid-19 era. Live shows will need to be flexible and live streaming is a great way to keep music going. Streams have become essential for live music junkies like RtBE. Things are (hopefully) improving on the pandemic front but live streams will be an option for artists during the foreseeable future. We will highlight various shows/streams/virtual events for your viewing and listening pleasure and as a way to help out the artists. You can check out our weekly Full Show Friday series for concerts from the past and as always, please support the artists any which way you can.

Today we highlight: Ron Carter Quartet Spring Benefit Concert 2022 "Measures of Hope"

Jazz legend Ron Carter plays with his Foursight Quartet at the 2022 Measures of Hope Benefit tonight.  From the source:

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.
