Sponsoring a Veteran

Ember is dedicated to bringing the power of music to bear on issues of social significance. This year, leading to the centennial anniversary of the World War I Armistice (11 November 2018), Ember is exploring the human impact of military conflict.

Without question, the most heart-rending evidence of such impact can be found in the lives of veterans and their families. Learn how Ember is serving as a catalyst for significant conversations and how you may sponsor a veteran during this series of concerts.
