N.O.W. FUNDRAISER For Our Music & Arts Community!
N.O.W. MUSIC & ARTS provides Artists a PLATFORM to exhibit and perform their work during these troubled times shaped by the CoVid-19 pandemic and the social tensions that have set our country and world on edge. Historically, artists have transcended civilizations through their art; and I feel that it is our collective duty as a society to assure they are supported in the days ahead.
Artists bring forth light, joy and sense of purpose to our community. On June 20th, we launched our first Music & Arts Salon on Zoom with eleven International Artists from multiple disciplines and ethnicities representing the United States, Russia, South Korea, Spain and South Africa! Since then, we’ve live-streamed five more Salon events on our “N.O.W. Music & Arts” YouTube channel.
In seven months, we’ve featured over three dozen International artists from around the globe, including South Africa's own legendary singer-songwriter Tu Nokwe and Manila's critically acclaimed concert pianist Jovianney Emmanuel Cruz, who resoundingly launched the N.O.W. Concert Series on November 19. Our "Holiday Celebration Around The World" Show brought to the N.O.W. Music & Arts stage award-winning classical guitarist and composer Daniel Wolff from Brazil, members of the Metropolitan Opera Chorus in NYC and America's own pop icon Sister Sledge!!!
We’ve set our bar high, staging some of today’s best talents on our multifaceted platform! However, we cannot carry on this unique and worthy endeavor on our own. WE NEED YOU. With your PARTNERSHIP as donor, WE CAN HELP transform our severely affected music and arts community. TOGETHER, WE can continue to avail our stage for the next artists. As well, viewers reap in the benefits with topnotch entertainment at the comfort of their homes while concert halls and performance venues remain closed, a sliver of light that lends itself to balance and normalize day-to-day living during these calamitous times.
We love what we do, as evidenced in our art! NOW, this incredible journey comes back in full circle with YOU ON BOARD. Your generosity will help keep our lights on and our vision alive! TOGETHER, we can continue to transform the lives of our brothers and sisters, parents and children, mentors and neighbors in our community!
Please DONATE TODAY! Thank you so much!!!
Happy New Year!!! A Look Back at N.O.W. in 2020
We produced one show a month, seven altogether; and to cap off 2020, we'd like to share our Scrapbook with you, our new friends. If you're curious about what we are all about, this should do it in five minutes. This sums up what we've done all of 2020! You will find our programs unique, truly diverse, and good! Music are excerpts from "Salon Mexico" for Piano by Aaron Copland-Leonard Bernstein, as performed by Jovianney Emmanuel Cruz at the inauguration of the NOW Concert Series in November.
Until the next show in 2021, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

OF SOUND MIND BODY & SPIRIT: A Celebration of music & arts Salon in the covid era!!! fundraiser
OF SOUND MIND BODY & SPIRIT: A Celebration of Music & Arts Salon in the CoVid Era!!! - changed to N.O.W. MUSIC & ARTS - was born out of the idea of providing artists a platform on which to exhibit and perform their work while in lockdown. It is to encourage their creative pursuit during these troubled times staged by the CoVid-19 pandemic crisis, as well as the racial and social tension that have set our country and world on edge. Historically, artists have always had the ability to transcend civilizations through their art. And, I feel that it is our collective duty (as a society) to assure that their voices are heard in the days ahead.
Despite having no work, many Artists have traversed the uncertainties and challenges to help relieve some of the social tension, while creating opportunities for our community. On Saturday, June 20th, we launched our first Music & Arts Salon on Zoom, which comprised of eleven international artists from multiple disciplines! The composers, singer-songwriters, dancer/choreographer, painter, cellist, rapper, and a chef presented inspiring video narratives and live-music performances, as you see here on this video. It is my vision to have this "Music & Arts Salon” an ongoing event monthly through live-stream presentations of diverse acts on YouTube and Facebook.
We cannot do this on our own however. WE NEED YOUR HELP! With your PARTNERSHIP as donor, WE CAN HELP transform our severely affected music and arts community. No donation is too little or big. With the funds we raise, the featured artists will be compensated respectably for their hard work, production costs can be defrayed and the remainder goes toward future salon productions highlighting works of artists worldwide.
