So -  if you are anywhere near San Francisco on Sunday afternoon December 1st, DO NOT MISS THIS opportunity to hear an extremely gifted young musician who has won numerous competitions and awards yet wants to donate his time and talents for the service of others. 

Listen for Life artists and volunteers work very hard to produce these Notes for Nourishment concerts in cities worldwide in order to offer renowned musicians (all ages, all cultures, all locations worldwide) the opportunity to perform free one-hour programs that nourish their audiences, while collecting free-will donations for a cause or nonprofit of their choice that nourishes the homeless, hungry or hurting of their communities. 
Eric has decided he wants to request your donations to benefit TWO non-profit organizations, so Listen for Life will be there collecting your generous contributions, as mentioned earlier, for MusicInSchoolsToday.org, which offers music programs for disadvantaged young children throughout the greater SF Bay Area, and for HCNKids.org (Homeless Children's Network), a recent beneficiary choice with our younger NFN performers because they love the idea of helping kids their own age who just happen to be homeless. 
Come be enchanted by Eric's musical and imaginative music, and come match his generosity with your participation and donations. See you Sunday!
