Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor to Perform at Bridge to Restoration Concert Series

June 3, 2011– (New York, New York) Andre Solomon-Glover had developed an international career singing a wide repertoire ranging from the roots of American song to opera, from Broadway to ground-breaking contemporary works. Mr. Solomon-Glover, whom critics have called “a remarkably communicative performer,” has made solo appearances in major halls throughout the United States and Europe; he has performed with the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Philadelphia Orchestra, among others.

In 2002, however, Solomon-Glover suffered a stroke that resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury. Since his stroke, he has performed very little compared to his involvement prior to his stroke. Andre is supported in his home by national nonprofit, Community Options that develops housing and employment supports for people with Traumatic Brain Injury and other developmental disabilities.

Community Options has been supporting Andre for four years and the organization assists Andre with various daily living skills. Andre is also a graduate of RUSK Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine out of the New York University Langone Medical Center.

On June 19, 2011, Solomon-Glover will get the opportunity to perform again at The Bridge Concert Series that celebrates the legacy of the West Park Presbyterian Church.

The concert series presents a variety of genres and styles of music. Each night will be hosted by a not-for-profit organization. Andre will be featured on June 19 in the “Bridge to Restoration” concert. Andre is special to West Park and his story is the epitome of the “Bridge to Restoration” theme. Andre will be joined by an eclectic set of musical artists Dana Hanchard, Erasmia Voukelatos , Ashley Horne, Greg Beyer percussionist and Jed Distler pianist, all of his colleagues are established concert artists.

All concerts will be held at West-Park Presbyterian Church located at 165 W 86th St, and will begin at 7:00 pm. Doors will open at 6:30 pm. Advance tickets are $25 each, and can be purchased in person at West-Park during business hours or online through Brown Paper Tickets at
