Five-time Grammy-nominated musician Michael Feinstein will present a special performance at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Oct 21, to benefit the Opportunity Project — a Millburn-based nonprofit that assists individuals with brain injury. Dubbed “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” Feinstein is considered one of the premier interpreters of American standards, and has performed in venues ranging from the White House and Buckingham Palace to Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. For Thursday’s NJPAC show, Feinstein will be joined by special guests Christine Ebersole, Michelle Lee and Debbie Gravitte.
Opportunity Project was founded in 1993 by families affected by brain injury, and has grown from serving five members to over 100 individuals and their families. The organization provides vocational, educational, social activities and supportive services to those coping with brain injury. Thursday’s benefit will help enhance Opportunity Project’s services and ensure that no prospective member will ever be turned away due to lack of funds.
