MESA Spring Concert for The Lynx Project – APR 2022

This is a video recording of a virtual fundraising concert put on by NAFME UIUC Chapter and UIUC MESA benefiting the Lynx Project.

You can listen to their works performed by University of Illinois students at 16:00 and 20:16, respectively, but definitely take some time to listen to the entire event which features beautiful musical performances of works through LYNX’s Amplify Series – Amplifying diverse voices through new song commissions.
