New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie Cumbo will be introducing the event.
“From our founding in the early 20th Century, Brooklyn Music School has been animated by the idea that music and performing arts can be a powerful force to bring immigrants from around the world to share and rejoice in their cultures and renew a common language of democracy. At a time when many children and families in our community feel under siege, we are thrilled at the talented artists who have come together to make a strong statement of support and raise money for a very timely and important cause,” said Crocker Coulson, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Brooklyn Music School.
“One of New York City and Brooklyn’s greatest strengths is the infusion of talent and energy of immigrants from around the world. I am pleased to be part of this important event and I will continue to fight to create a welcoming city for all and to protect the rights of children and families to pursue the American Dream,” said NYC Council Majority Leader, Laurie A. Cumbo. “Music has the power to overcome divisiveness and create bonds of connection and understanding like few other arts forms.”
