Conceived and developed by Raissa Katona Bennett, The Concerts for City Greens is part of a newly forming non-profit, MUSIC AND ART FOR GREEN, whose mission is to expose culturally and socio-economically diverse audiences of all ages to free, professional live music and art events in city settings, while linking with other community groups and organizations to promote the "greening" of cities in various ways including, but not limited to: fiscal support, educational outreach, fostering environmental awareness, action and volunteerism. The organization will continue to produce at Tudor City Greens, while actively promoting creative and inclusive uses of other public green spaces.
