Tibet House US will hold its 21st Annual Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, March 3, 2011. Philip Glass, the concert’s Artistic Director, once again brings together an exceptional line-up of artists including Michael Stipe, The Roots, Patti Smith with Jesse Smith and Michael Campbell, Angelique Kidjo and James McCartney with more performers being confirmed soon. Tickets are on sale now and available at the Carnegie Hall Box Office. Special packages that include tickets to the concert and a fundraising reception following the performance with the event’s Honorary Chairpersons and artists are available through Tibet House US.

The Tibet House US 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.
