About this Event

This is the 45th consecutive year that Group 11 of Amnesty International USA will present a benefit concert to support AIUSA’s activities defending human rights. The concert is on Sunday afternoon, December 6 at 3:00 PM. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic it will be a virtual concert.

Our program will feature performances by two outstanding duos – baritone/piano and violin/piano. The musicians are Mario Diaz-Moresco and Spencer Myer, and Herdís Guðmundsdóttir and Liam Kaplan. Music will include works of Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, and Pulitzer Prize winning composers Jennifer Higdon and George Walker. Among the highlights are John Musto’s profoundly touching and timely song “Litany”, set to a poem by Langston Hughes, and Liam Kaplan’s own prize-winning “8 Preludes” for solo piano.

Ms. Guðmundsdóttir has performed as violin soloist with the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. Liam Kaplan has recently released his recording of JS Bach’s monumental Goldberg Variations. Messrs. Diaz-Moresco and Myer have performed as duo recitalists throughout the US, most recently Beethoven’s “An die Ferne Geliebte” for On Site Opera’s production of “To My Distant Love.” They will perform this groundbreaking song cycle at our concert as well.

All tickets are $20. Your order will be confirmed and you will receive an email with the link to the concert the day of the concert.

If you cannot come to the virtual concert, please consider contributing to Group 11’s essential work protecting human rights.

In observance of Human Rights Day on December 10th you can find letters on selected Amnesty cases with global significance on our website, https://aiusagroup11.org, to print and mail from home.

We look forward to welcoming you to the concert on December 6th.

Thank you very much for your support.
