Patrick Galvin for the Benefit of Dirty Girls of Lesvos
Galvin and pianist Jungeun Kim have recently premiered local composer Stefan Cwik's American Troubadours, which they are looking forward to performing at Zion Lutheran in September. This piece is inspired by a variety of American folk music influences. For the remainder of the program, Jungeun and Patrick will perform music from Bach to Bartok and discuss the influences behind those works, comparing the process of working with a living composer to the interpretation of pieces by composers of the past.
Fully 100% of all donations will go directly to Dirty Girls of Lesvos, an on-the-ground NGO that has pioneered the cleaning and redistribution of used and discarded clothing, bedding, and other materials for humanitarian relief. Foreign Policy magazine named founder, Alison Terry-Evans, one of its Global Thinkers in 2016. Ms. Terry-Evans will share the powerful story of Dirty Girls’ work in the refugee camps of Lesvos and on mainland Greece.
