Afghan pianist, composer, and Longy School of Music student Arson Fahim presents a virtual concert with the goal of raising awareness about the inhumane persecution that Afghan musicians are facing under the Taliban and to raise funds for Afghan musicians in dire need of assistance. This multi-ensemble event features original music by Arson and traditional and contemporary Afghan music—performed by over 70 volunteers from the Longy community. The concert will premiere on YouTube on March 21st at 5:00 pm ET. It is free and open to all. Please join us for an evening of hope, inspiration, solidarity and love.
Contributions will be made through Teach to Learn , a US-registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All donations will be tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. With the help of the International Campaign for Afghanistan’s Musicians (ICFAM ) and the Daanish Foundation UK, the funds will be transferred to struggling Afghan musicians within the country and those who have recently fled.
