Tibet House Benefit Concert


Patti Smith
Tibet House US will hold its 19th Annual Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday, February 3rd. Philip Glass, the concert’s Artistic Director, once again brings together an original line-up of contemporary artists including rock icon Patti Smith and her daughter Jesse Smith, The National and Vampire Weekend, with more performers being confirmed soon. Tibet House US marks its 22nd anniversary this year.

The annual concert assembles some of the biggest names in music and offers audiences a mix of unprecedented musical collaborations and solo offerings. Past concerts have featured such talents as David Bowie, Paul Simon, Sheryl Crow, Moby, Sigur Ros, Bright Eyes, R.E.M., Natalie Merchant, Rufus Wainwright Emmylou Harris, Live, Ray Davies and Damien Rice, among many others.

The Tibet House Benefit Concert commemorates the Monlam Prayer Festival traditionally held at the time of the Tibetan New Year. The festival drew vast numbers of monks, citizens and pilgrims from all over the country who gathered to pray for world peace and prosperity. Tibet House US is a non-profit organization founded in 1987 at the behest of His Holiness the Dalai Lama that serves as a center for the preservation and presentation of the endangered Tibetan culture.

Carnegie Hall is located at 881 Seventh Avenue (at 57th Street). Concert tickets are $35 to $85 and can be purchased by calling CarnegieCharge at (212) 247-7800 or in-person at the Carnegie Hall Box Office.
