LTV Studios and Jewish Center of the Hamptons will host “A Concert for Israel” to support humanitarian relief in Israel. The event features music by Mick Hargreaves, Jeffrey Levitt, Peter Martin Weiss and Lauren Lebowitz and takes place in Studio 3 on Wednesday, December 13, beginning with the lighting of the Menorah at 6:30 p.m. followed by the concert at 7 p.m. There will be wines donated by Amagansett Wine & Spirits and potato latkes made by Charlotte Sasso. Tickets cost $90 for VIP which includes front row café table seating and are $54 for general admission. To purchase tickets, text LTVISRAEL to 41444 or visit bit.ly/3NcVZ9K.

Having gotten the build of his sprawling 100-year-old farmhouse recording studio completed, Mick Hargreaves has returned to releasing new material, all of it recorded at the Lantern Sound Recording Rig. In August 2022, "Crystal Ball", a cowrite with Joe Delia, was released to all streaming platforms. His latest single "See What You Can Make With This" was released in April of 2023, and then in May 2023 Mick's rendition of "Half as Much" appeared on the 22-song "Hank Williams Uncovered" tribute release (Paradiddle Records).

Jeffrey Levitt has been playing guitar in bands since the year the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. He is currently a member of The Moondogs and the Steve Tekulsky Band. Jeff is very active in the local music community and he and his wife Karen are full time residents of East Hampton.

Peter Martin Weiss studied the guitar and string bass and after college, became an established bassist on the New York Jazz scene. He was a member of the Etta Jones/Houston Person Quintet for 10 years, touring internationally and performing at premier jazz festivals and concerts. On the Savant record label, he recorded on over 40 CDs, including his own, Bass Hits. Peter met and married pianist Jane Hastay in San Francisco while on tour. Together, they produced the CDs "Never Never Land" and "The Good Life." Peter taught at the State University of NY at New Paltz on the jazz faculty. Now living in East Hampton, he sings with the Choral Society of the Hamptons and performs locally on bass and guitar.

Lauren Lebowitz has been seen in numerous National tours, Off Broadway and regional productions, readings and workshops. She toured with the USO, entertaining our troops and veterans with performances on army, marine and submarine bases, naval ships, at Bob Hope's 100th birthday, on NBC's “Today Show,” and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. A graduate of the University of Michigan and Royal Academy of Music she is the proud mom to Jesse, Theo and Chase.

LTV Studios is at 75 Industrial Road in Wainscott. For details, call 631-537-2777 or visit ltveh.org/.
