This Sunday, June 21 at 5:00pm ET, join us for The Heart Chant, a world-wide musical exchange led by IONE, Claire Chase, and Racquel Acevedo, hosted by the MUSIC on the Rebound and the International Contemporary Ensemble for #MakeMusicDay.

The Heart Chant is one of composer Pauline Oliveros’s “Deep Listening” meditations, written in response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. Last Make Music Day, nearly a dozen Heart Chants took place on three contents. This year, people anywhere in the world are invited to join this virtual performance for an offering of sonic healing through listening and vocalization. No music experience is necessary!

Tune in live from your phone or computer to be a part of a uniquely powerful collective that we need more than ever in this time of social distance and unrest. Register here: https://www.musicrebound.com/heart-chant
