Dino, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, and Robert Stearns to Honor Israel at Carnegie Hall

Written by SGN Scoops on January 31, 2013 – 3:43 pm -

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Well-respected, award-winning Christian recording artists are honoring Israel this spring in a gala benefit concert being hosted at Carnegie Hall by pianist Dino Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl.

The special “Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall” concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the world famous venue. The event will feature performances, from the Philadelphia Boys Choir, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, and The Christian Cultural Center Chorale as well as the musical talents of Robert Stearns, operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez, and Grammy and Dove Award-winning singers Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris.

“Anti-semitism is on the rise, and Israel is now surrounded by nations committed to her destruction,” world-famous piano artist Dino said. “Cheryl and I have always prioritized praying and working for the peace of Jerusalem. My friends, it is vital that we stand together.”

Robert Stearns, founder of Eagles’ Wings, and a global leader in Jewish-Christian relations, said, “The evening of music will celebrate our nation’s longstanding and unbreakable bond with Israel at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious venues.”

“There has never been a time in our nation’s history that our public and private bond with Israel has been more critical,” Stearns said. “With this historic concert, we hope to make it clear that New York stands with Israel.”

Proceeds from the event will go to feed hungry Jews, Arabs and Druze in Israel through humanitarian non-profit, “Hope for Zion” as well as to help build a prayer and study center in Migdal Arbel, Israel, whose mission is to cultivate a love and understanding for the people and nation of Israel.

Nashville, TN – May 24, 2011 —  “America’s Piano Showman,” GRAMMY Award-winning pianist Dino Kartsonakis will host a benefit event to raise funds for victims of the recent Missouri floods on Thursday, May 26, at 6:30 pm CST at the Branson Convention Center. The night will feature a silent auction, special celebrity guests, and performances by Dino

and other world-class entertainers.

On April 25, Branson, Mo. suffered the most catastrophic natural disaster to date. After several weeks of unrelenting rain, Lake Taney Como rose to unprecedented levels, breaching levees and submerging everything in its raging path under freezing water. Officials estimate that the flood affected approximately 300 families, leaving hundreds homeless and destitute. Among those families was Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl, who lost  a lifetime of musical awards, archives, grand pianos, furniture, clothing, photographs and family heirlooms in 13 feet of water.

The Official Branson Celebrity Flood Benefit is Kartsonakis’ contribution to restoring his community. He comments, “Our goal with this event is to give back quality of life to the victims of this terrible tragedy. My hope is to make these victims victorious!

Additional event sponsors include The Hilton, Branson Bank, and Christian Associates. All proceeds will be distributed by Christian Associates and will be given directly to the victims who have been hit the hardest. For more information or to reserve your seat, visit or text BRANSONFLOOD to 90210.

About Dino Kartsonakis:

GRAMMY Award-winning Dino is one of the premiere performers of our time. He is indeed “America’s Piano Showman” – a title aptly given to him by more than 80 million people who are witnesses to his majestic piano styling each year.

For 18 years, Dino entertained Branson, Missouri, audiences with his exceptional showmanship and talent making his Christmas production one of the most critically acclaimed shows in the entertainment city.

Taking time out from their seasonal show, Dino and his co-host and wife Cheryl make the trip to New York City, to tape “The Dino Show” – a weekly music and interview formatted show on TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network), the top rated Christian television network. TBN takes “The Dino Show” into 200 countries where Dino’s message is wonderfully received.

In 2000, Dino joined forces with QVC, the 4th largest network in the U.S. in an auction benefiting MusicCares, an organization which helps musicians and singers experiencing difficult times.
