Thanks for attending!

Dear friends,

The church was packed with over 400 attendees!

Thank you all for your support and attendance at the benefit concert! In what was truly a lovely event, family and friends of Hope and Gus joined together on November 18 at St. Ann’s Church in Brooklyn Heights to attend a benefit concert. The concert was put on by the Brooklyn Friends of Chamber Music, together with the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, and directed by Nicholas Armstrong. The performance featured Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major, Op. 20 and Beavers’s Roscoe, a concerto for violin, narrator and orchestra on a text by William Kennedy. Harris Yulin, a good friend and wonderful actor, performed the part of the narrator in the Beavers concerto.

The concert was a wonderful tribute to Hope Reichbach and her father Honorable Gustin L. Reichbach, who passed away in July 2012. Over 500 people attended the event, and many partook in a toast after the concert!

Some photos from the event are below:

The musicians included J Freivogel and Nicholas Mann on violin and David Geber on cello.
