Singer Josh Groban will headline Boys & Girls Harbor's annual Salute to Achievement, to be held in The Heckscher Building on June 7 beginning 6:30pm.
This 75th anniversary event will showcase the Harbor's mission to empower children and their families to become full, productive participants in society through education, cultural enrichment, and social services. It will honor Citi CEO Vikram Pandit for Citi's commitment to supporting programs that educate and inspire young people in New York City.
This year's program also features an original mini musical, As We Go…, which was conceived by the faculty at the Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts. Inspired by the words of a Harbor student, the title heralds the transformation that takes place among students as they discover their talents, take ownership of their dreams, and broaden their perspectives about the future.
Groban appeared in the London concert version of the musical Chess, and his many CDs include Illuminations, Noel, and Awake.
