Outdoor event/Masks required

Pianist Miki Sawada performs at UU Urban Ministry in Roxbury as part of her 13-stop Gather Hear Massachusetts tour! She is traveling the 50 states with a piano to perform in community gathering spaces instead of concert halls, to find a shared humanity across political and socioeconomic lines in this divided country. After tours through Alaska and West Virginia, she is touring her home state of Massachusetts.
Miki will perform works by Florence Price, Franz Liszt, and a piece written specially for this tour by Boston-based musician Ariel Friedman.
