Music for Myanmar: A Benefit Jazz Concert and Panel Discussion Supporting the People of Myanmar
Teddy Horangic and Ensemble
Tune in Sunday 4/25 from 7 – 8:30 pm for a live-streamed benefit panel discussion and jazz concert in support of the people of Myanmar.
The event can be watched on Youtube here.
The concert will feature some of the most exciting, emerging jazz talent in New York City, playing live. The lineup includes Andrew Latona on guitar, Matt Baker on piano, Luther Allison on drums, Jonathan Michele on bass, Kellin Hanas on trumpet, and Teddy Horangic on vocals. The panel will feature a recent US Ambassador and UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Myanmar, a Burmese journalist, and two professors working to promote scholarship in the country.
After Myanmar’s military junta enacted a coup on February 1, they have killed over 650 peaceful protesters (most of them young people) in cold blood and imprisoned many more. The economy is in free fall, and a terrible humanitarian crisis is on the horizon. The UN is warning that Myanmar could become “the new Syria”.
