“Let your heart full of love pervade the whole wide world, abounding, sublime, without measure.”
A communal celebration of gratitude and one-world activism, Song For All Beings is a seamless collaboration woven by scores of musicians, dancers, and storytellers. The high-level performances spring from many spiritual and cultural traditions, creating a ceremonial concert that unfolds on stage and in the audience over the course of the evening—and long afterwards.
Song For All Beings, which premiered in 2013, began with a walking meditation in the hills of Northern California. As the words and melody of a new song came to singer/songwriter Jennifer Berezan, a bigger vision played out in her mind. She imagined a flowing tapestry of light, music, story, and dance. The song was merely the start.
Part celebration, part revolution, Song For All Beings invites, in fact, demands we open our hearts, and, in Jennifer Berezan’s words “hold the whole world in these arms.”
