On September 11, 2017, members of Palaver Strings will perform at the New England Center and Home for Veterans. September 11th can be a very somber day, especially for our veterans, when we reflect upon the tragedies and losses that occurred in 2001. Although we may live within a global context of continuous misunderstanding, chaos, and conflict, music and art can act as a reminder of the abundant beauty, joy, and love in the world and help bring us together as a society. In addition to our visit to the center, NECHV will assist us in transporting veterans, who will receive free tickets, to our September 29 concert at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA. A spokesperson from the organization will speak at the concert to help raise awareness about the sacrifices our veterans have made for all of us and what we can do to support them.
