The UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council presents tHE HEARTBEAT PROJECT Benefit Concert
Providing music and math education for students on the Navajo Reservation
Sunday, 13 May 2018, 7:00 pm
All Saints Episcopal Church (230 E 60th Street)
All proceeds will be directed to The Heartbeat Project, which provides music and math education for Navajo (Diné) students living on the Reservation. The project strives to create an atmosphere of cultural exchange in which the impact of American colonialism on indigenous peoples is acknowledged, and Diné music, cultures and customs are respectfully engaged. Our environments must no longer be filled with hateful rhetoric and action towards minority groups, including indigenous people. This is an incredibly vital time for us to connect with the Native American population and share an experience of cultural exchange through music - a language of peace and understanding. At the concert, learn more about the Heartbeat Project, Diné culture, and indigenous rights – while enjoying a beautiful music programme which will feature a Navajo Melody – the Diné Healing Song, arranged by Elliot Lichtenberg.
