On Thursday, January 19, 2017 a dozen plus leading creative musicians will gather together at Symphony Space (NYC) at 7:30 p.m.for a rare concert to say: “NO! In the name of humanity, we stand against a fascist America.” An extraordinary evening of artistic passion and urgent commitment, which will be hosted by five time GRAMMY winner Arturo O’Farrill, this live streamed concert takes place the night before the scheduled inauguration — with protests growing in Washington DC and around the country. “Musicians Against Fascism” is a benefit concert for #RefuseFascism.org
Artists include Claudia Acuña, Fabian Almazan, Harry Belafonte, Lakecia Benjamin, Stephan Crump, Peter Evans, Mary Halvorson, Vijay Iyer, Amirtha Kidambi, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Roy Nathanson and the jazz passengers, Arturo O’Farrill, Matthew Shipp, Jen Shyu, Somi, The Westerlies, and more to come. Writer Larry Blumenfeld will MC the event.
