‘Come Together’ Online for No Place for Hate on Friday, April 3

Even in times of pandemic worries and social distancing, our communities are not homes for hate: That’s the message more than a dozen musicians from across the Mid-Atlantic will come together online to share next week.

The virtual “Come Together” concert at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) on Friday, April 3, will feature live performances from the musicians’ own homes, which are scattered across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, as well as the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas. The benefit event supports No Place for Hate®, a 20-year old initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that is present in hundreds of school districts across the country.

Zoe Clark’s first ventures into songwriting functioned as a living journal – a way to document her young experiences, as she grew up in the shadows of New York City.

“Writing music started out as my diary,” Clark said. “It was just a way to help me understand my own thoughts and emotions, and put them on the page.”

Emotional Release and Relentless Creativity: Inside the Mind of 0-Brien
