Physicians for the Prevention of Gun Violence (PPGV) presents Concert Across America in Ann Arbor to raise awareness about the epidemic of gun violence in America at Genesis Synagogue on Sept. 25 from 3-5pm.
Concert Across America is a series of live concerts across the nation – all taking place on the same day with the mission of ending gun violence.
Our program will feature a solo performance by internationally known concert pianist and recently retired University of Michigan piano professor, Louis Nagel.
It will also feature a performance of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, performed by a chamber orchestra comprised of local musicians and conducted by Kevin Fitzgerald, the current music director of ÆPEX Contemporary Performance. He is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan’s School of Music. Kevin co-organized and conducted the phenomenal “Requiem for Orlando” that took place at Hill Auditorium this past June in the wake of the Orlando massacre.
We look forward to bringing awareness to the preventable epidemic of gun violence through the transformative power of music.
