We want to let you know about an upcoming local concert that we will be involved in. This summer has in so many ways taken an incredible and immeasurable toll: the shortest list would include a nightclub in Florida, the streets of Minnesota, at rally in Texas, bombings in Turkey, and an earthquake in Italy. And some losses have been closer and more personal, but all have taken their toll. And sometimes words just are not enough. We need the healing power of music.
Our friend, Rabbi Brockman at Congregation Mishkan Israel
in Hamden has organized a night of music for Wednesday evening, September 21 and we will be there to share our music along with about eight other musical groups representing the beautiful flower garden that is our community.
Here's what Rabbi Brockman wrote,
"In light of the recent tragedies all over the country, Congregation Mishkan Israel will be hosting a Unity Concert at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21st. Join us for an evening of diverse melody, harmony, and rhythm – a cacophony of our community coming together in sound and song. This event is free and open to the public! No tickets are required."
The Unity Concert will feature Salsa, Klezmer, Classical, Rap, Arabic and African Drumming, Jazz, and other artists.Congregation Mishkan Israel
is located at 785 Ridge Road in Hamden. The event is free and we hope you join us and that you will share our message with your friends. We'd like to see great community support for this night of many coming together to heal through music.
Àse and Shalom,
Warren, David, Abu, Alvin, Saskia, Stacy, and Will
