Felipe Alberto - Christmas at the Madison 2014

Benefit Concert – Christmas at the Madison

Of all the shows I do a year one of my favourites is undoubtedly Christmas at the Madison. Every year Ms. Louise Gallagher puts in countless hours to organize this event in which musicians, comedians, and visual artists donate their art to raise funds for the Madison, a shelter for homeless veterans in the City of Calgary. The concert was held this year at the historic St. Stephen’s Church in Calgary’s downtown. These events show the true Christmas spirit and the love which the Christ Child represents in our world; I thank Ms. Louise Gallagher for her yearly efforts and enthusiasm in this endeavour.

 

It is truly a privilege to share a little of my art for this cause. What is more, because of the proximity that artists have to the audience at this venue, there is a much more intimate atmosphere than at most concerts. This closeness makes me feel as if I were just jamming in my living room with friends. As always it was a wonderful evening.
