Stirring Strings


After the  overwhelming response and support we received for "Winds of Change", we now bring the second concert in the series, "Stirring Strings" - Soul Stories!

An evening of personal stories from strings artists around the Bay!
We invite them to share what inspires them, what makes them create, their pains, traumas, struggles, triumphs!

We request you to donate to the campaign so we can compensate the artists for their time, effort, support and creativity!

Please join us on October 4th,  at 5pm on https://www.facebook.com/namahafoundation/
watch the artists play, listen to what they have to say and feel...
