HOPE

This event took place on Feb 6, 2021.

Friends from all across the world shared music and messages of hope. After the performance audience member Pietra Escalante, wrote: “I have no words to thank you for such beautiful moments. Lately for me the sense of hope has been so difficult to grow and when we are lucky enough to cultivate it, sometimes it is difficult to share it because everyone experiences it in a different way. Yesterday the concert was like a seed to be grown and nurtured no matter the garden no matter the season and that allows a sense of connection that has been missing for a long time.”    

Featuring Jorge Caballero (Perú), Raphaël Feuillâtre (France), Ioana Gandrabur (România), Dieter Hennings (Mexico), Ekachai Jearakul (Thailand), Celil Refik Kaya (Turkey), Irina Kulikova (Russia/Netherlands), João Luiz (Brazil), Bahar Ossareh (Iran/Canada), David Russell (Scotland), An Tran (Vietnam), Xuefei Yang (China), and four young artists from the United States: Aytahn Benavi, Emilia Diaz Delgado, Damian Goggans, and Eric Wang
