CrosbyStillsNash.comAs Crosby, Stills & Nash work their way around the U.S. on their ongoing tour, they continue to support a variety of charities and causes. The folk-rock trio has now scheduled an intimate benefit reception and concert at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles on October 3 that will help raise money for two progressive schools in the area.
Only 300 tickets will be sold publicly for the show, while attendance at the pre-concert event will be limited to 200. Twenty lucky attendees will be treated to a meet-and-greet with CSN during the reception. Tickets are on sale now at the website of the Guacamole Fund which is coordinating the event.
The events will benefit the CHAMPS Charter High School of the Arts, Multimedia and Performing in Van Nuys, California, and the Highland Hall Waldorf School in Northridge, California. The CHAMPS Charter High School is a tuition-free institution that focuses on various arts, while requiring all of its students to give 100 hours of their time to community service. The Highland Hall Waldorf School offers a curriculum focusing on arts, science and math, while seeking to promote creativity, a sympathetic world view, self-confidence and a moral approach to life. Both facilities boast an extremely high graduation percentage for their students.
"These two tremendous schools give as much priority to the arts as they do strong academic curricula," says Stephen Stills in a statement. "I am proud to have my children attend these fine learning institutions and feel privileged to contribute to their success."
