There's still time to get your tickets!  Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan will host a benefit concert on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. to aid those still recovering from Superstorm Sandy.


The Concert for the Renaissance of the Jersey Shore will feature the internationally-renowned female vocal group The Mediaeval Babes. All programs at the Library are free, but for this benefit concert, cash donations will be accepted at the door.


All donations will go directly to Sandy relief efforts coordinated by the Monmouth County Long Term Recovery Group. Please be generous at the door!


Tickets are also required for this concert, but all tickets are free. You can pick up your free ticket at the Reference Desk at Library Headquarters, 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan, or call the Library at 732-431-7220, x7222.


The Mediæval Bæbes are a British ensemble of female musicians founded in the 1990s by Katherine Blake, who was joined by other singers who share her love of medieval music. The group pulls lyrics from medieval texts and sets them to original scores for songs of astonishing beauty.

Twelve years later, these talented singers have placed three albums into the top of the classical charts and their contribution to the BBC production of The Virgin Queen (composed by Martin Phipps) resulted in a deserved Ivor Novello Award 2007 for best television soundtrack. 


The Mediaeval Baebes have performed before enthusiastic audiences in the UK, United States, Canada and Europe in venues ranging from castles and caves to nightclubs and Renaissance Fayres.  They have played at The Royal Albert Hall, Carnglaze Caverns in Cornwall, Jersey Opera House, Tewkesbury Abbey, supported Michael Flatley in Hyde Park, and performed at the legendary Lilith Fair.

They will be in the United States for a short six-week tour and will be stopping by the Library for the Sandy benefit concert. Don't miss this special event!
