“Facing a catastrophic regime change, on January 19 outstanding jazz musicians will gather together at The Symphony Space in NYC for a rare concert to say: ‘NO! In the name of humanity, we stand against a fascist America.’ An extraordinary evening of artistic passion, urgent commitment, hosted by five-time Grammy winner Arturo O’Farrill, this livestreamed concert takes place the night before the scheduled inauguration—with protests growing in Washington D.C. and around the country. ‘Musicians Against Fascism’ is a benefit concert for #RefuseFascism.org.”
To inspire and propel efforts of people throughout this nation and world to remedy this terrible moment for humanity, we ask that you join us at Symphony Space. Guests include Claudia Acuña, Fabian Almazan, Stephan Crump, Peter Evans, Mary Halvorson, Vijay Iyer, Amirtha Kadambi, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Roy Nathanson and the jazz passengers, Arturo O'Farrill, Matthew Shipp, Jen Shyu, Somi, The Westerlies – and more to come.
For those who cannot afford a ticket, 15 minutes prior to the concert, unsold tickets will be made available on a pay whatever you can basis.
