10/23/19-The Calais Sessions

Updated: Jul 31

This piece is about a woman named Christie Burns who became involved with a program that gathered refugee musicians living in a refugee camp in Calais, France. She talks about her experience sharing her own music from Chattanooga while also immersing herself in other cultures and being able to hear the stories of refugees through what they played. At the end, she wrote, "I know music isn't going to solve it all, but it helps build that empathy and connection." My hope is that HeartBEATS will also work toward building empathy and connection here in the Phoenix community.
