Third Street Music School Settlement will host its 118th Anniversary Luncheon on October 25 from noon to 2 pm at Gotham Hall. Tony Award-winning director and producer Hal Prince will serve as master of ceremonies.
The event will feature performances by Third Street students and presentations to this year's honorees: Audra McDonald and Claude Kelley. McDonald is receiving the award for Distinguished Achievement in the Arts and Kelly, a Grammy Award-nominated songwriter, will receive the Rising Star Award.
Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit Third Street's students in need. More than 75% of the school's students receive some type of need-based financial aid.
Honorary Co-chairs of the Luncheon are Anna-Maria Kellen and Hal Prince; Co-chairs are Third Street board members and their spouses, Peter Flint & Sarah Gordon, and Roni Kohen-Lemle and Robert Lemle.
