Harman Pro Backs Festinho Festival

Boutique fund raiser for Jimmy Page’s Action for Brazil’s Children

EAST ANGLIA, United Kingdom — Take a charity founded by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, the expanding Festinho 2009 weekend fund-raising celebration of Brazilian music to support it, and sponsorship from Harman Professional, and you have a recipe for a highly successful event.

New York, NY – September 2009 … Part of the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center is Downtown Manhattan’s premier presenter of the arts, reaching audiences from the college community, downtown residential and business communities, schools, families, and audiences of all ages.
