Brave Troubadours is a live concert and educational series, showcasing today's frontline musical change agents.
This special edition of Brave Troubadours will feature Connie Fortunato, the Founder and President of Music Camp International (MCI), joining us live from California. MCI transforms children, communities and countries through the power of music. Since 2002, MCI has served approximately 30,000 children in Romania and Ukraine. Under Connie’s leadership, MCI is using music to build bridges of communication and interaction—crossing all economic, educational, social, political and religious barriers to work with children from the finest environments to those living on a landfill in a toxic waste disposal site.
Please join us for a specially curated showcase of live music videos from Connie’s work and inspiring reflections on her relentless drive to use music as a tool to foster dignity and love in children from all situations in life. Facilitated by Liz Stookey Sunde (Co-Founder & Executive Director of Music to Life) with production assistance from Sarah Morge, Communications Major, Pace University, and the Music to Life Team (Esme Cole, Paige Menneci and Randi Herath).
All funds raised will be donated to the MCI Team in Ukraine.
"We believe passionately that all children are talented and should be given love and dignity – and the opportunity and encouragement to discover and develop their talent in a positive environment." – Connie Fortunato
