Music and Protest – a Panel Discussion with Public Q & A
Music and Protest is the first event in Musicians on the Frontlines, a series of free virtual concerts, talks and community events that explore the ways music creates positive change, and how it is adapting to a new world. In this panel discussion, Allan Ballinger (Cuatro Puntos Ensemble cellist and Gateway College professor) and Kenneth Long (University of Saint Joseph professor) will be joined by Aaron Jaffaris and Byron Au Yong, creators of the Activist Songbook. Together they will discuss music and protest.
This is an entirely virtual event. You may reserve a virtual ticket at no cost. Upon reserving your virtual ticket, you will receive an exclusive link to the interactive room and virtual program. You can look forward to interacting throughout the panel discussion, and you are welcome to join conversation via the comments section, or by coming on screen at designated times.
54% of the arts workforce in the United States has been lost since March 2020, making collaboration among organizations vital. The 2020-2021 season series Musicians on the Frontlines is presented as a partnership between Cuatro Puntos and the Autorino Center for the Arts at the University of Saint Joseph. Thank you for continuing to support the arts by attending our events!
