World Premiere:  Global Ensemble for Social Good

The Music Action Lab is a social impact accelerator uniting musicians around the world to advance social justice causes and to nurture the next generation of musical changemakers. The ensemble hails from Africa, Asia, South America, and the US.

Over the last month, the musicians from Pakistan, Rwanda, Brazil, Togo, and the US were immersed in a dynamic music residency. In the classroom and in the bandroom, the ensemble worked with industry-leading social change leaders and professional recording artists to create new, original music dedicated to advancing social justice and social good.
