Grammy Winner Mary Chapin Carpenter Holds Benefit For Pocono Environmental Ed Center Oct. 24

Harmony Presents will produce a benefit concert for the Pocono Environmental Education Center on October 24 in Scranton staring 5-time Grammy winning performer Mary Chapin Carpenter in concert at the Lackawanna College Theater.
“We’re very excited to showcase this 5-time Grammy Award-winning singer- songwriter and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee. We couldn’t be happier to work with PEEC in producing this exciting event and fundraiser for them,” says Jill Carletti, Managing Director of Harmony Presents.  “Mary Chapin Carpenter will be performing songs from her expansive 14-album catalog and new songs from her latest record The Things That We Are Made Of, which was released May 6, 2016.
“Bringing Mary Chapin Carpenter to northeast Pennsylvania for a worthy, charitable organization such as PEEC is part of how we continue to expand,” said Carletti.
Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records.  In 2014, Carpenter released her debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie, which was arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza.
Since it’s release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.
