Red Hook Education Foundation 9th Annual Gala
Fisher Center, SpiegeltentThe Red Hook Education Foundation (RHEF) presents millennial jazz prodigy Grace Kelly. Featured by Vanity Fair as a millennial shaking up the jazz world, Kelly’s state-of-the-art brand of jazz-pop is pushing her to the forefront of the fusion scene.

Tickets are $75 for dinner and dancing; $250 sponsorships, including a pair of tickets, are also available.
Grace Kelly’s early career featured performances at Barack Obama’s 2016 inauguration and as a soloist with the Boston Pops playing an original composition arranged for the legendary orchestra; she has since then played over 900 shows as bandleader in 35 countries at venues like the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl and for the Montreal, Newport, and Montreux international jazz festivals. “Grace Kelly has an electric charisma on-stage that instantly ignites the room,” says Jon Batiste, bandleader for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Kelly has won numerous ASCAP and other songwriting awards, including a Grand Prize nod in the 2018 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for the song ‘Feels Like Home.’
The Red Hook Education Foundation (RHEF) is a 501c3, volunteer-led organization founded in 2010. Thanks to the generosity of donors RHEF has funded programs that have enriched the lives of every student in the Red Hook School District.
