Simple Gifts Tour - Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center - Washington DC

  • The John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts 2700 F Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20566 United States (map)

On Palaver Strings' East Coast tour Simple Gifts, we will perform classical masterworks and folk melodies alike, framed by words from American poets, artists, historical figures, and current visionaries. Letting music take over where words fall short, we invite you to join us in a shared musical experience. As music gives us a time and place to reflect, we hope to bring communities closer together: made stronger by their diversity, wiser through dialogue, and more compassionate through shared experience. Palaver Strings' simple gift is music.
