Afghanistan: A Conversation with Musicians and Journalists

Join us in conversation with four female and male musicians and journalists from Afghanistan, newly arrived to the USA in August 2021, as they describe their alternately inspiring and harrowing experiences.

A portion of proceeds from the event will be directed to support musicians in Afghanistan and their families, as well as those who recently arrived in the United States.  This event is presented by Musical Movements for Change, a nonprofit organization associated with Classical Movements.

During COVID when all concerts and venues were shut down, Classical Movements decided to present an outdoor, live concert series “Sounds of Hope & Harmony” in solidarity with our clients and friends in the local music community and specially designed to accommodate safe social distancing for performers, audience and staff. Concerts usually take place on Thursdays and Saturdays (with some Tuesdays and here and there, other days of the week), with different start times and rain dates for many performances.

This has turned out to be s silver lining of COVID and the artists and the community overwhelmingly want them to continue. Thousands of members of the DMV area come to these no-fuss, casual concerts, set amongst our beautiful garden, featuring world-class concerts, celebrating the illuminating power of music during this period of so much uncertainty and tension.
