December Concerts to Benefit Tree of Life

Many of the major fundraising events for last month’s Tree of Life massacre are over, but musical artists are continuing to bring the spirit of giving and support.

Musicians will bring their talent to the stage with two concerts this December, both dedicated to raising funds for those affected by the Tree of Life tragedy.

“A Concert For Unity,” happening Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Byham Theater, will feature a collection of artists from around the Pittsburgh area. The music will span a variety of genres — country music duo Dan + Shay is headlining the event, with hip-hop and rap artist FRZY and rockabilly The Andy Davis Band making an appearance as well. Tickets are sold out, but you may be able to snag a seat or two from a second-party vendor.

If you can’t make it Sunday but still want in on the action, tune in — “A Concert for Unity” will stream live on 100.7 STAR (WBZZ-FM) and Y108 (WDSY-FM).

Another benefit concert will happen Dec. 18 at Stage AE. The concert, hosted by 91.3 WYEP and PromoWest North Shore, will feature artists from rock to folk to pop artist Daya, all with ties to Pittsburgh.  

Tickets cost $25, and all money will go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Victims of Terror Fund. You can buy tickets here.
