Doors and access to the "Unity in Variety" exhibit at 6:00pm, performance begins at 7:00pm.

In response to the pandemic and societal turbulence of the last two years, Grammy-award winning violinist and producer Johnny Gandelsman has created “This Is America,”  a new commissioning and recording project featuring over twenty new works for solo violin, written by American and U.S.-based artists. Commissioned by twenty different arts organizations spread throughout  the U.S., “This is America” celebrates America's rich cultural tapestry and its myriad perspectives, thoughts and ideas, offering a vivid counterpoint to the idea that this land can be understood through a singular, dominant point of view. Each composition in the anthology reflects on the current state of American society in a personal and intimate way, looking through an unflinching lens at universal topics like separation, loneliness, hope and love.
