Kimball Gallagher 88 Concert Tour

The World-renowned pianist has been on a four-year international tour and stopped by New York City this past Friday.

Located at the TFC Cornerstone Solarium, Gallagher performed beautifully in the personal space, bringing back traditional salon culture.  The concerts are unique in many ways, however, one of the most noticeable is the close tie between music and charity.

During the concert composer Reena Esmail, Michael Harrison, and Gallagher all had premiers of new compositions performed by Kimball, as well as some classic pieces including Sonata in B Minor from Franz Liszt.  Gallagher preformed most of these compositions as solo works, along side a duet with Reena Esmail backed up with the traditional Indian Harmonium.

Gallagher studied at the Shepard School of Music at RICE in Houston Texas as well as The Juilliard School of Music in New York.  Recent work of Kimball’s includes a residency at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, Kabul Afghanistan, a fundraising concert the Acropolium in Carthage, Tunisia which raised over $19,000 to establish a new technology center for underserved part of Tunisia for a year, as well a a fundraising concert for People Eye Care Foundation of Thailand which raised enough money for 18 vision saving surgeries.
Kimball has partnered with the organization Chintan who strives for environmental justice through partnership with the people and groups in various sections of society.  The goal is to support equal and sustainable production and consumption of materials.  With the money and resources earned, Chintan ensures green jobs, security and dignity to those working in low class environments.  While most of who Chintan directly affects is in these classes (waste pickers, kabaris, etc…) they also have a strong focus with students, parents, teachers, elected representatives, municipalities, (RWA’s) residents welfare associations), and the police.
