Chilean Earthquake Benefit Concert by Mover and Shaker Melody Fader

From our Mover and Shaker, Melody Fader:

In support of the Chialean earthquake relief, I will be playing on a benefit concert next Wednesday evening.  I am really happy to be donating my services for this cause, especially because I had the opportunity to travel to Chile a few years ago on a recital tour with soprano Elisa Cordova, who I will be performing with on this benefit.  I will also be offering a Chopin Nocturne (one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever!).  So please come out of you can to support the cause while listening to beautiful singing and piano music.  The info is below:
