Mar. 31—The Gladys Porter Zoo and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums invite the community to attend an interactive virtual music benefit concert, “All Together for Animals” that will benefit several aquariums and zoos throughout the country that have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among those who will benefit from the event is the Gladys Porter Zoo. This concert will feature streamed original performances from Brad Paisley, Old Dominion, Ashley McBryde, Riley Green, Jessie James Decker, Shy Carter, and Wynonna Judd.
The program is produced by Contemporary Productions in St. Louis and intends to also build awareness of the financial impact AZS- accredited zoos and aquariums have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic to raise funds for these facilities.
“The performances were shot on location at the AZA-accredited Nashville Zoo at Grassmere and at the Steel Mill studios in Nashville, Tennessee,” a press release reads.
The event will be streamed at 7 p.m. Wednesday online and during the show viewers will have the opportunity to make additional donations in real-time.
