A Musical Evening with Paquito D'Rivera
Benefitting Special Music School


On November 2nd, Devorah Rose Krieger and David Krieger hosted A Musical Evening benefitting Special Music School in their home at the Four Seasons Private Residences. Latin jazz star and multi-GRAMMY winner Paquito D'Rivera performed a private concert for the guests. He was joined in several selections by Special Music School fourth-grader Santiago Del Curto on the clarinet.

As well as a spread of delicious hors d'oeuvres provided by Mr. and Mrs. Krieger, guests enjoyed a prosecco bar sponsored by Bellisima, Christie Brinkley's signature line of organic prosecco. Altogether the evening raised over $13,000 for the music program at Special Music School.

Special Music School is New York City's only public school for musically gifted children.  Students in grades K-12 experience rigorous college-prep academics combined with an intensive conservatory-prep music education. The School was recently ranked the #1 elementary and middle school in New York State based on 2017 state math and English test scores.
