Pianist, composer, and Longy student Arson Fahim and Longy School of Music are proud to present a virtual concert—to raise awareness for musicians in Afghanistan, suffering inhumane Taliban persecution, and to raise funds for musicians who have taken refuge from the country. 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 March 21st at 5:00pm ET. It is free and open to all. Please join us for an evening of hope and inspiration.
Arson is also fundraising for struggling Afghan musicians within the country and those who have recently fled via Teach to Learn with the help of the International Campaign for Afghanistan’s Musicians (ICFAM) and the Daanish Foundation UK.
