Together we make all the difference
Thank you so much for joining us! We are excited to have you be part of our community! Everyone on our team is volunteering their skills and sharing the same passion: transforming the world through communication, music and arts. Music is a language that doesn’t need translation. Our unique ConcertTalks combine music performances with panel discussions creating awareness for The Universal Declaration of Human Rights – think of a TED talk meets a live concert, just cooler.
We look forward hearing from you!
If you want to contribute in any way or want to join our team please contact our Executive Director & Chief of Staff Brian Hoffmann.
