I was impressed this a.m. at the Rebelution site to read about three teen siblings taking the initiative this summer to organize a benefit concert to raise funds for combating human trafficking in Houston . Click here to read.
Now, I can hear some of you blonds, "Yeah, the traffic in Houston is so horrible, so many accidents & traffic jams that like something really should be done."
No, no, no.
We are not talking automobiles. We are talking PEOPLE.
HUMAN trafficking is modern day slavery. And yes, something should definitely be done about it.
Thus my notice of these siblings.
Their concert is featuring not a garage band or two but acclaimed clarinetist Håkan Rosengren, concert pianists Rick Rowley, Caleb Harris, and Andrew Staupe, and violist Luke Fleming, a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at the renowned Julliard School in New York City.
It will be held at Jones Hall on August 29th and is entitled Broken Cords. For more info & to obtain tickets, click here.
