The 12th annual Tibet House Benefit Concert has been scheduled for Feb. 22 at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The event, which benefits the organization’s goals of preserving Tibetan culture, so far boasts scheduled performances by David Bowie, Philip Glass, and the Kronos Quartet. Glass, who is a VP on the Tibet House board, will serve as the event’s artistic director as he has done with past editions of the concert.
Ticket and dinner-party packages are available now through Tibet House (22 West 15th Street New York, NY 10011; 212-807-0563), according to the organization’s Web site. Concert-only tickets not already sold will be made available approximately two months prior to the event via Carnegie Charge (212-247-7800) and the venue box office.
The 2001 edition of the show included appearances by Glass, Bowie, Natalie Merchant, Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Dana Bryant, and the Gomang monks, as well as a surprise solo acoustic performance by Dave Matthews.
