Physicians Talent Showcase Returns Aug. 20

The Kretzer Piano Music Foundation will present the second annual Physicians Talent Showcase to benefit Adopt-A-Family and the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation on Tuesday, Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace (700 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach).

A prescription for a great evening, the event will showcase local doctors with real musical talents. The concert will feature ballroom dancers, vocalists, an all-physician band, a classical guitarist and a country western singing hospital CEO.

Tickets for the showcase are $50 each, payable to the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for children who need help in order to receive music instruction. The foundation also sponsors music events with an emphasis on performance opportunities for young musicians. These music events and concerts not only benefit local children’s charities, but also help to keep music in schools.

Proceeds from the concert will also benefit Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring families in crisis to stability and self-sufficiency. Adopt-A-Family’s Project Grow focuses on building social, emotional and education skills for formerly homeless children who live in the agency’s housing programs. In the past year, Adopt-A-Family has helped 543 families have a safe place to live.

The “Physicians Talent Showcase” is part of Kretzer Piano’s ongoing “Music for the Mind” concert series benefiting children’s charities and music education. Held on the third Tuesday of every month in the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace, the Music for the Mind concerts feature musical groups from Palm Beach County.
