Mariah Carey and Joy Torre are jumping all over the New York Philharmonic's charity benefit set for July 13th in New York City's Central Park. The free performance is dedicated towards hurricane victims and other displaced Americans, though a sizable portion of the proceeds will go towards the Philharmonic itself.
The New York Philharmonic said on Monday that two unusual stars (unusual for the Philharmonic, anyway) would join the orchestra for a concert in Central Park on July 13: Mariah Carey and Joe Torre.
The orchestra and Major League Baseball are promoting the concert as a charity affair to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Major League Baseball has planned several events that day to raise money for hurricane rebuilding, including $1 million connected to the concert, bringing to $5 million its donations to charities in time for the All-Star Game at Citi Field on July 16.
