Interfaith Refugee Welcome Concert Benefitting Catholic Charities Center for Immigration Legal & Support Services
The Interfaith Refugee Welcome, a non-profit Bay Area interfaith group that supports immigrants as they transition to their new communities, and ListenForLife.org, a worldwide consortium of volunteers that use music to help heal, educate, and inspire others on a variety of humanitarian issues, will host one of its award-winning Notes for Nourishment concerts to benefit Catholic Charities Center for Immigration Legal & Support Services, specifically the work with unaccompanied minors.
The one-hour, family-friendly program will feature works by Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, and Paganini performed by national award-winning Bay Area teen pianist Josephine Chan and her equally gifted young colleague, violinist Pierce Wang. They will be joined in two chamber music pieces by professional cellist Robert Howard who has generously donated his time.
While admission is free, donations for the Catholic Charities Center for Immigration Legal & Support Services will be collected at the entrance and exit. All are welcome with suggested donations of $10-20 per person. Free parking is available behind the Basilica.
The Catholic Charities Center for Immigration Legal & Support services has been chosen as this month's beneficiary for its steadfast work in protecting the lives and dignity of immigrants by providing legal services, counsel, and advocacy.
