San Francisco, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swords to Plowshares is proud to host our 2nd Annual Summer Solstice Symphony Concert taking place on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, at the historic Herbst Theatre.

The concert will be a joyous evening of music by Symphonia Caritas, a professional orchestra that plays to improve the lives of those in need. Symphonia Caritas will feature Mozart’s Overture to Marriage of Figaro, Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor. Accompanying the orchestra to the stage will be accomplished solo pianist Jeffrey LaDeur, who has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Smithsonian.

“The services that we offer empower veterans to live meaningful and productive lives. Thanks to our sponsors and community partners like Symphonia Caritas, the funds raised from our Summer Solstice Symphony Concert will go to supporting San Francisco’s most vulnerable veterans. Without community partners like Symphonia Caritas, our work would not be possible,” said Michael Blecker, Swords to Plowshares’ executive director.

“My wife and I,” said Paul Schrage, musical director of Symphonia Caritas, “are deeply grateful to the veterans who have sacrificed for our protection and defense. With veterans constituting an outsized proportion of the overall homeless population, we are proud to partner with Swords to Plowshares to raise money to help prevent and end homelessness and poverty among all veterans in need.”

All proceeds from the event will go to support Swords to Plowshares’ critical services to the nearly 3,000 San Francisco Bay Area veterans served annually.
