6th Annual Benefit Concert in Honor of Helen’s Memory
Cafe 704, Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd., Ann Arbor MI
Laz played a number of concerts at Cafe 704 over the years, always with his wife Helen, until she passed away in 2012. To honor her memory, and to celebrate her life, Laz is dedicating this yearly concert to her. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to two organizations: one that supports nature preservation, and the other, an emergency shelter for homeless children and their families. Both of these causes were very close to Helen’s heart.
Laz will be joined by a number of musicians, all of whom performed or recorded with Helen over the years. Laz and his guests will sing some of Helen’s songs, as well as original and traditional music in both folk and classical styles.
