Over the past week, New York City and its neighbors have been rebuilding after an unprecedented storm devastated our region. Hurricane Sandy took lives and caused damage that will be felt for years to come. The Hostos Community College family sends its heartfelt condolences to all who are still suffering.
With so many people still not out of harm’s way, Hostos Community College Foundation, the Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture, along with the College’s administration and the artists, have decided to postpone the Fall Concert featuring Cheo Feliciano and Danny Rivera that was scheduled for November 16th.
This decision was not taken lightly and was reached unanimously after much deliberation with everyone involved. Hostos Community College realizes that many people are still recovering from the devastation left by Hurricane Sandy, and holding a celebratory event while the rebuilding continues would not be in the public’s best interest. Hostos Community College wishes rather to focus its energy on helping those in need and hold this celebratory event at a more appropriate time.
As soon as a new date for the concert is determined, we will let our community know. Those individuals who purchased tickets for the postponed event will be contacted by the Main Theater Box Office in order to issue a refund. In the meantime, if you prefer to contact the Theater Box Office, please feel free to do so by calling 718-518-4455.
Because this concert was intended to benefit for the Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture and also serve as a celebration to recognize the 40 years of service of its director, Wallace Edgecombe, Hostos Community College will continue to sell special Seat Inscription Plates to raise funds for this purpose. Plates for orchestra seats are $1,000; plates for mezzanine seats are $500; and plates for balcony seats are $250. All donations are tax-deductible.
To purchase Seat Inscription Plates or discuss other donations, please call Dianne Vargas, Division of Institutional Advancement, at (718) 518-4152. She may also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
