Since its inception last year, State of Emergency (SoE) has sought to assemble like-minded composers and performers who feel the need to respond to our tumultuous times in their art with the goal of raising funds and awareness for worthwhile causes. In May 2019, SoE had its first concert at Areté Gallery space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, raising over $500 for the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and providing a great sense of community, catharsis, and ways for participants and the audience to take direct action toward a progressive cause.
In its second concert, SoE is presenting pieces that explore difficult and relevant topics including climate change, coastal flooding, nuclear fallout, gun control, and the need to maintain bird habitats. Join these composers and performers in an exploration of our time and troubles, in a benefit for something true and decent. All proceeds will be donated to the Environmental Advocates of New York (EANY).
