Local pianist Joanne Kong is teaming up with cellist Christoph Wagner to present a special concert titled "Stands of Compassion" Sunday afternoon, October 30th at 4pm at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Richmond.  The duo "weave together music, reflections and imagery in an inspiring event that will illuminate how embracing the connections we have to the natural world and all beings can bring about transformative spiritual growth, positive change and planetary healing."  The event is free, although donations are being accepted to benefit the Porchlight Animal Sanctuary.

I recently spoke with Joanne and Christoph, who discussed how they met and teamed up based on their connection with music and vegan advocacy.

Yours in good music,
