Amplifying Solidarity: A Northrop Online Series is a program of free live streamed concerts and a film screening occurring throughout the month of September intended to use music and art to lift the voices of marginalized people and also to welcome our campus community.
A collaboration between Northrop, Radio K, Weeks of Welcome, Multicultural Student Engagement, and The School of Music, these events will focus on the movements that are uniting us this year: the physical distancing requirement that is forcing us to collaborate in new ways; and the Black Lives Matter movement that is uniting us to bring an end to systemic racism. In a year filled with powerful events, ever-changing daily life, and an upcoming election, we hope to help amplify the voices of our community members while sharing some spectacular music by Twin Cities artists. The free concerts will be live streamed from Northrop's Carlson Family Stage. The film will be screened over Zoom, followed by a talkback, and also will be free with donations requested. Links to these events will be provided with registration.
