Syrian Refugee Music Program
We are aiming to leave for Greece in January.
The funds will pay for our flights, food, and lodging, allowing us to spend at least one month at Camp Ritsona. We will also visit other camps in the area. I will supply all necessary musical equipment. Together we will help create a new body of music rising from the creativity of the residents. We also will sing popular Syrian songs that will stir deep emotions, helping refugees process their traumas. Crystal will do art programs with the kids and help with video production. Together we shall join forces to help these people move forward in their lives..
As professional musicians having entertained millions of people over the course of our careers George and I have never experienced music having such a powerfully beneficial effect on any population of people. Now we are ready to find out what can be achieved if we make a deeper committment to this process.
If you choose to donate to this cause, I want to know who YOU are, why you are so moved (unless you choose to be anonymous. ) It is WE who shall help.
The gratitude for your contributions will be shared by the many Refugees that benefit from the birth of their new life. There is no turning back for them. Syria is a total mess. They have to move forward and creatively concieve of their new life.
In order to protect them from hostile forces, I will need to go through a clearing process of various photos and pieces of music, soon to be shared.. Again thanks. I'm sure Ill be going again
