Songs For Our Future by The Pam Ortiz Band
Fri, May 5, 2017, 8:00 PM
In the Ortiz household, we have a framed quote from Spanish cellist and composer, Pablo Casals:
I am a man first and an artist second. As a man, my first obligation is to defend human dignity. As an artist, I will fulfill this mission through music — the unique weapon which God has given me – and that which trancends the boundaries imposed by language, politics and national borders. My contribution to world peace will be humble, but at least I will have given all for this ideal which, to me, is sacred.
In the spirit of Pablo Casals, the Pam Ortiz Band has decided launch a monthly concert series in 2017, to raise funds to protect important rights and vulnerable people. Each month's concert will feature a different topic with related music, poetry, and special guests. Each concert's proceeds will be donated to an organization that champions the cause we feature. We hope you will join us.
Due to the popularity of this series and our makeshift venue's limited seating capacity, we ask that you please make free reservations through this site. Donations will be accepted at the door ($15 suggested, $10 for students). Please do your best to make reservations for an accurate number of guests, and update your reservation if anything changes. We expect the concerts to sell out, and will have an active waiting list.
