Unity through Art

Dear friends,

We are saddened, troubled, and sickened by the events in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Throughout our short 4 years of presenting concerts, we have made it our mission to build an inclusive community based on a common bond for the love of music.

We have presented musicians that are from different faith backgrounds, different sexual orientations, different ethnic backgrounds, and different countries.  We have a special place in our hearts for our American friends who are able to travel to us and play beautiful music in our spaces.  We hope that you continue to bring beauty to your own communities in an effort to forge bonds of unity.

The bonds created by sharing musical experiences are truly spiritual.  They are quickly forged and hard to break.  Let us use music to create a society in which people co-exist peacefully and are able to state their differences peacefully and with dignity.

The staff and administration of Müzewest official condemn racism, prejudice, and hate in all of its forms.  Artists have never remained silent in such times and so it follows that we too will take a stand.  Our audience will continue to be a safe space for all people and we will ensure the safety of all guests.  Our selection of musicians will continue to reflect the diversity of our society.
