Silver Jubilee: Celebrating the Founders | UNITYFest
2 February | 7:00 pmFree & Open to the Public, Tickets Required for Entry
Musical Bridges Around the World’s first performers were members of CEO Anya Grokhovski’s family, students, and friends. This concert brings them together again, as Anya takes the stage with pianist Valeri Grokhovski, bassist Zlatan Redzic, percussionist Darren Kuper, violinist Mark Cheikhet, pianist Elena Portnaya, Agarita Chamber Ensemble, and mezzo-soprano Veronica Williams. All generations of musicians will unite in celebrating, reuniting, and contributing to a shared peace that comes through music.
