of Aretha Franklin
event will be Dorf's 14th annual tribute concert held at Carnegie Hall, with 100% of the net proceeds given to music education organizations for underprivileged youth. Dorf has announced that over $1.3 million has been raised by the series to date for Young Audiences New York, Little
Kids Rock, Church Street School of Music
and Grammy in the Schools, among others.
Dorf's must-see sold-out Carnegie shows have previously honored the music of Bill Withers, David
Byrne, Paul Simon, Prince, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., Neil Young, The Rolling Stones
and others. Last year's David
Bowie celebration, by an unfortunate coincidence, transformed into a memorial as "wide-ranging and celebrated as Bowie's career" (The Guardian), which led to the addition of another performance at Radio
Hall after the initial show sold out immediately. 2015's David
Byrne and Talking Heads' celebration was "so explosive that absolutely no one wanted to leave" (Billboard) and Byrne himself closed the show, leading the marching band Brooklyn United down the aisles of Carnegie Hall onto the historic stage.
