Musicians supporting the people of embattled Gaza
In a beautiful collision of altruism, more musicians are donating their time and talents to help kids this week. Instead of helping the children of Denver, as the Denver Gives March Music Jam will, these musicians will benefit kids on the other side of the world. On Friday night, March 27, at the Driscoll Ballroom on the DU campus, you can catch a world-class lineup for a mere ten clams. The indomitable Ian Cooke, the captivating Joshua Novak and the powerfully charming Hello Kavita will all contribute to the Gaza Relief Concert, an event intended to raise awareness of the very human suffering endured by the people of that region, and to raise money for the Middle East Children's Alliance, an organization that helps families and children in need.
With a mission to promote peace through awareness, the University of Denver's Association of Human Rights Students - an entirely student-run organization - conceived the Gaza Relief Concert as an opportunity to attract a diverse audience to hear multiple perspectives on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The goal is not to promote a specific agenda, but simply to increase awareness and stimulate both thought and action.
