Closing Session


We’re born hot-wired for music, and it’s something that connects us all and unites us.

Marin Alsop Conductor


Afghanistan is a silent nation since the Taliban made it illegal to play, teach, or even listen to music earlier this year. Watch a performance by graduates of the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM), followed by a conversation with Marin Alsop and Renée Fleming, who supported the evacuation of 273 students and faculty from Kabul in December. David Rubenstein will moderate this discussion on how the philanthropic and musical community aided in this effort.
