Steve Greene Needs Our Help!

As some of you may know Steve Greene has had some difficult health troubles and was hospitalized a while back. He is on the mend, but its been slow going, and it could be a while before he is out and about again. A go-fund-me site has been set up for him to help out. I think the site can say it all better than I can, so here is the link should you want to chip in to this big tip jar.

Hopefully we can give Steve some help. Thanks and best wishes, RGC


Steve Greene is a gifted musician whose voice is the guitar. As a composer he specializes in writing for modern dance companies. He has worked with the critically acclaimed Garth Fagen Dance and most recently with the Boston Dance Collective. He teaches, writes and performs regularly around Rochester and Western NY.
