Wednesday, October 7, 2009 Songwriting Workshop AFTER THE STORM FOUNDATION is continuing its fundraising efforts on behalf of St. Mark's (now the NORTH RAMPART COMMUNITY CENTER). Our own Randy Redd organized an amazing evening of song at Joe's Pub in NYC on August 31st. Featuring some of Broadway's most inspiring young talents, including La Chanze, we were able to raise the necessary funds to keep the doors of the Center open and the After-School program going into its third year. We are planning to travel down to New Orleans to conduct a songwriting workshop with the kids at NRCC sometime this Fall. The plan is to then bring back the songs and perform them in our next fundraising event at Joe's Pub (Dec 7th)
