The Palace Theatre & Community Partners Co-Host Special "Paint the Town Pink" Concert for Survivors, Friends and Family

This week, at The Palace Theatre, nearly 100 breast cancer survivors, their families and friends were honored at an intimate evening of live music and celebration. “Moving On” at The Palace marked the wind-up of a month-long calendar of social and educational events steered by Stamford Hospital’s renowned Bennett Cancer Center.

Broadway veteran Frank Mastrone performed both classic and contemporary hits with pianist and composer, Patti Preiss-Harris and classical guitarist, Annalisa Ewald, both who shared their narratives and journeys with breast cancer. Surprise guests included Patti’s Saxophonist-husband, Bill Harris. Joining Mastrone on some selections was local soprano, Allegra Themmen-Pigott.

The Palace, a non-profit theater, proudly hosted the “Moving On” event by providing their new UpStage performing arts venue to host the event along with offering complimentary tickets to cancer survivors and a reduced price for families and friends. The well-attended concert was open to the general public.
