Jeanné Wagner Theatre
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Salt Lake City, Utah

On sale: 8/30/2019 at 10am.

Join us for fun, food and music in an unprecedented effort to bring free music education programs to children in conflict zones and refugee camps around the world.

Enjoy performances by Violinist Aubree Oliverson, Soprano Celena Shafer, and Gifted Music School’s incredible Conservatory Orchestra led by Maestro Conner Covington. Special guest Emmy Award winner and Grammy nominated KURT BESTOR will also perform. The evening also features a presentation by Shropshire Music Foundation director Liz Shropshire, “The Life-Changing Impact of Music Education for Children in War Zones.”



VIP TICKETS (all tickets at the $100 price point) include an exclusive post-concert reception with performers Celena Shafer, Aubree Oliverson, Kurt Bestor, and Liz Shropshire.

100% of proceeds will go to The Shropshire Music Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to develop youth leadership and capacity for peacemaking in global conflict zones through locally-run, youth-led music education programs. These programs provide local children opportunities for education, trauma relief, expression, and to reduce vulnerability to extremist group participation. Your contribution this evening will help Syrian and Yazidi refugees in Greece, former child soldiers in Uganda, genocide survivors in Kosovo, Catholic and Protestant youth in Northern Ireland, and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Your involvement will also help kickstart an initiative to bring an after-school program to refugees living in Salt Lake City. www.teachingchildrenpeace.org
