Seattle Concert For Earthquake Relief 2/25 (6pm Pacific)

Please join us at a special evening bringing together diverse local musicians united in an effort to support organizations working on the ground in Turkey and Syria to aid the victims of the recent devastating earthquakes.

The program includes Turkish classical and folk music, Mevlevi Sufi music, Japanese shakuhachi flute, songs from the Greater Black Sea Region, western classical music and more. Members of Seattle’s Turkish community will offer desserts and refreshments, as well as handmade crafts and jewelry for purchase.

100% of the proceeds raised from this event will be donated to credible aid organizations working in the afflicted regions. This concert is a private initiative brought to you by a coalition of the willing and the concerned.

The concert will take place on Saturday, February 25th at the Interfaith Community Sanctuary in Ballard (1763 NW 62nd Street, Seattle WA, 98107). Doors will open at 5:30 PM; music begins promptly at 6:00 PM. Consider arriving early to peruse the treats and crafts on offer, also available during intermission and after the concert.
