Benjamin Lerner: An Evening of Recovery and Music via ZOOM

February 25, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Collaborative’s Refuse to Use program presents composer, writer, radio host, and recovery advocate Benjamin Lerner. Benjamin will share his personal experience and struggles with addiction – as well as his inspiring story of resilience and hope – in both words and music.

Benjamin, the great-grandson of Irving Berlin, started his musical career as a classical piano prodigy, but by his early twenties, he was a full-blown addict. Now sober for more than 4 years, he journals his journey in addiction and sobriety in his all new piano-raps, which combine classical piano and rap. His debut album, CLEAN, was released in February of 2020 and his weekly column, also entitled CLEAN, appears in The Vermont News Guide. He is the host of CLEAN Jams on WEQX, which celebrates rap, hip-hop and recovery every Thursday night at 11 p.m.

This event is being presented with partnership from Old Mill Road Media. Register here.
