Raise the Roof Concert Tickets Now Available
SYRACUSE, NY – It’s not often fans can get up close and personal with the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra (SSO) but at the 2007 Raise the Roof Benefit Concert to be held on Monday, November 19 at Temple Adath Yeshurun, that’s just what people can experience. In addition, attendees will be treated to two additional performances by impressive groups followed by the headline concert of the SSO. This exclusive benefit concert — the only one the SSO hosts during its season — will raise enough money to build one Syracuse Habitat for Humanity house in the Near Westside of Syracuse for a hardworking family currently living in substandard housing.

Temple Adath Yeshurun, 450 Kimber Road, Syracuse
