the long version

For this once-in-a-lifetime event, we’re briefly leaving behind our beloved Crypts, Catacombs, and Cemeteries, and spending an evening in the hallowed halls of the United Nations, offering exclusive seats to a singular night of music-making by two of the most inspiring women we’ve ever encountered. Composer Paola Prestini and singer/songwriter Magos Herrera have created their program Con Alma as a testament to unity and connection, and passionate cry for a better future. Here at the global seat of political power, in the wake of International Women’s Day, this music speaks even more directly as a celebration of community among women, and the creation of safe spaces where meaningful conversations can start and continue to take place.

The short version

A truly unique opportunity to spend an evening in the United Nations Headquarters, experience a powerful, purposeful performance conceived by two of our leading women of music, and then enjoy a post-show hang with the performers, DoC-style!
