Help us make this concert a true community experience open to all!

We are working with old and new partner organizations (e.g., Granny’s House, Youth Empowerment Zone, and churches that support recent refugees) to provide free tickets to local residents who may not be able to afford to attend. Please consider sponsoring an advance general admission ticket at $15 or tickets for a family of four at $40. Thank you for your support!
