“One act of love, I know for sure, is listening.” -Brian Palmer
Urban Voices Project vocalist and Street Symphony Fellow
Dear Friends, thank you for being with us today, in this space of loving and listening. Street Symphony serves to honor the voice of Skid Row – and to receive the voices of the most artistic, vibrant, and resilient community in America today. We rejoice in the artistry and humanity of the people who continually inspire the work of Street Symphony, the artists who form the fabric of a community, for whom music and art is a lifeline, not a form of entertainment.
Street Symphony is a promise to show up to a community and to be in relationship through the grace of music. Through musical engagement, performances, teaching artistry and dialogue, Street Symphony musicians receive the gift of making music for, and alongside, the Skid Row community – and people experiencing homelessness, poverty, and incarceration in our city today.
We ask you to join our movement by making a generous gift to Street Symphony today. We lift our voices to honor the fundamental dignity of every living being, to show up, and to take action with our brothers and sisters, our neighbors, our beloved community.
