Join us on Monday, June 17 at 7:30pm for a benefit concert in Distler Hall at the Granoff Music Center to support SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW. The concert aims to bring varied Boston-area musicians and concert goers together to bring awareness to the reproductive justice movement as a critical response to the state of reproductive politics in the U.S. The concert is organized in direct response to the laws passed in Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Georgia, Ohio, Utah, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Arkansas and to the threat to reproductive justice that increases day by day, particularly in our southern states.
Our lineup of musicians includes raga and jazz pianist Utsav Lal, vocalist and composer Claire Dickson, classical quartet the Craft Ensemble, saxophone and guitar duo Umbrella Pine, folk duo Sophie et Adam (joined by accordionist and Tufts faculty Michael McLaughlin), vocalist and composer Melissa Weikart, guitarist duo Lautaro Mantilla (NEC faculty) and Chris Cretella, pianist Ran Blake (NEC faculty), and Gospel vocalist Nedelka Prescod (NEC and Berklee faculty). All of these artists have donated their time and talents to this cause.
