L.E.S.P.A. aims to improve the quality of life in downtown New York City (Lower East Side, East and West Village, Soho and Tribeca) by organizing programs to preserve and develop culture in all of its forms, with special attention to women, minorities and ethnic diversity; to counteract the negative effects of rising real estate prices on communities and to prevent the current exodus of New York artists by encouraging new work; as an alternative to high-priced profit-driven entertainment, to offer free/low-cost cultural programs that are enlightening, educational and appealing, with a degree of depth that effectively addresses the complexity of our time.

International Tango

Lower East Side Performing Arts presents benefit concerts featuring a new program of International Tango composed and performed by Elodie Lauten on the keyboard, from the French songs of her childhood in Paris to the Argentinian Milonga, in a New York state of mind. She is accompanied by Jonathan Hirschman on guitar.

This series of charity events will help raise funds for Haiti relief and offer free entertainment in nursing homes of the Lower East Side. Please participate in the LESPA benefit on March 27 at Lafayette Bar & Grill to support our continued efforts to provide free programs of music theater, screenings and chamber music downtown.
