This year, Chanukah begins a few days after the Winter Solstice, and overlaps with Christmas and the secular New Year.
first night of Chanukah is Saturday, December 24. I love the
juxtaposition of all these festivals of light. With every candle we
kindle and every log we burn in the fireplace, we are adding light to a
dark season that desperately needs it, especially this year.
way we can add light is through sharing the healing power of music.
That's why I'm honored to join hundreds of other musicians and
music-lovers in a new project called Harmony In Unison.
This live online concert series begins on Facebook during Chanukah, and
I invite you to join the group so you can enjoy the warmth and spirit
we hope to project through LIVE online performances. Created by talented
Jewish artists Beth Schafer and Stacy Beyer,
the group is designed to showcase artistts who will perform their
original works in a live feed five nights a week, from late December
through at least the early spring. There will be no ads, no sales
pitches and no persuasion of any kind. This is just a freewill offering
of heartfelt music for all to share.
It is hoped that, through
sharing music this way, we will help each other find what we need to
move forward together to work for peace and justice -- for ourselves,
each other, and everyone we don't yet know.
I will perform LIVE on Sunday, January 29, at 5PM Pacific Time.
To catch this and other performances, simply sign up and join the group here:
you've been accepted into the group, simply check the calendar, gather
friends around the largest computer screen you have, and watch live
concerts in the comfort of your home. Concerts will last anywhere from
20 minutes to an hour, with most averaging 30 to 45 minutes in length.
music will be familiar, much will be brand new, and all of it will be a
gift to you, to brighten the dark days of winter and lift the sagging
spirits of so many who need it.
Please join me and some truly amazing
musicians on this journey of hope, love and peace. And may the warmth
of family, friends and the light we kindle and grow keep us all warm and
safe during the darkest days.
