In commemoration of everyone who struggled and fought for their people, diverse communities will join together to send a harmonious message through music and dance. The Friendship Concert will start off with a suite honoring Maya Angelou, an African-American poet and female civic activist, and relay the message of her magnificent fight and victory. This concert will emit hopeful messages and give an opportunity for our communities to learn and embrace each other’s differences.

Participating artists include Juli Kim (Artistic Director TAP), James Mahkween, Joy Williams, Sonia Ochoa, Evelyn Ifiegbu, Sunjoo Yeo, Crystal Her, Michael Kim-Sheng, Pat Tayor, Ramya Harishankar, Stephanie Cheung, Haihua Chiang, Yuanyuan Jiao, Joseph Wiggan, Isabella Weiss, and they are all joining together in LA for this special performance.
