“…Senders possesses a gift
for assembling fascinating programs.”

— Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe —

“Playing For The Planet: World Music Against Climate Change” is the fifteenth concert in an ongoing series of cross-cultural events produced by Boston-area musician and environmental activist Warren Senders. These concerts were conceived as a way for creative musicians to contribute to the urgent struggle against global warming. Their choice of beneficiary,, is focused on building global consensus on reduction of atmospheric CO2 levels — action which climatologists agree is necessary to avoid catastrophic outcomes.

Because the climate problem recognizes no national boundaries, the artists represent musical styles from three different parts of the globe, and share key musical values: listening, honesty, creativity, and respect. And, of course, they are all committed to raising awareness of the potentially devastating effects of global warming. It’ll be an incredible evening of powerful music — from some of the finest musicians in New England and the world.

Don’t miss the Brooks Young Band with Bryan Adams at Bank Of NH Pavillon in New Hampshire on June 17th. This will be a night of great music with New Hampshire’s own Brooks Young Band on the Magic Hat Stage and headliner Bryan Adams.
