The second season of our Heart of Humanity concert series celebrates the beauty of our natural world and inspires us to nurture the preciousness of all life on earth. 

As the relationship between humanity and our environment stands at a perilous crossroads, the regenerative power of the arts is more important than ever. Music, poetry, and the visual arts have the unique ability to reconnect us with our hearts, returning us to a state of peaceful equilibrium within ourselves and our community. Only then can we work together in common purpose to become better stewards of our planet.
