Musicians work in harmony for Afghan women

Musicians are tuning up for "Lifting the Veil II: A Concert of Women's Music,” an event at California State University, Sacramento to raise money for teachers working on behalf of the Afghan Women's Mission.

The concert begins with a discussion among the guest composers and performers at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 11 in the Music Recital Hall of Capistrano Hall. The performance starts at 8 p.m.

The event features Curvd Aire, a brass quintet comprised of CSUS alumni; New York-based pianist/ composer Beata (pronounced BEE-AW-TAW) Moon; Santa Clara pianist Teresa McCollough; and Southern California composer Alex Shapiro. All concert proceeds will benefit the Afghan Women's Mission, which works to provide health care and education to women and girls living in Afghanistan and Afghan refugee camps.

“Lifting the Veil” organizer Paul Simmons, CSUS alumnus and trumpet player with Curvd Aire, says the brass ensemble joined forces with the Mission shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks. “We were concerned with the terrible plight of Afghan women,” he says.

Tickets are available only at Capistrano Hall’s ticket office the evening of the event. They are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors.
For more information, contact Paul Simmons at (916) 835-7426. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
