Dream Theater's Jordan Rudess Generates $12,000 To Aid VictimsAmerican Red Cross-Sponsored Benefit Concert Aids the Victims Of the World Trade Center Attack. (October 23, 2001)
donated a check in the amount of $12,000.00 to the New York Chapter of the American
Red Cross. The funds represent 100% of the proceeds from Jordan's benefit solo
concert, which was held on September 24th, 2001, at the Helen Hayes Performing
Arts Center in Nyack, NY. The performance, which was arranged less than one
week prior to the show date, was promoted in the New York Metropolitan area
on local radio programs and musician and music enthusiast web sites. The concert
drew approximately 300 attendees at $50 and $100 per ticket.
The concert, which was digitally
recorded, will be quickly pressed to a Live CD and be sold through Jordan's
web site, http://www.jordanrudess.com,
with proceeds, again, going to the American Red Cross.
Jordan states, "I
hope, in some small way, the proceeds generated from my concert will offer some
degree of comfort to the families of the victims."
