AUDIBLE IMPACT, a year-long series of public service, workshops and intimate performances, showcasing entertainers and their commitments to social causes. Each event features a morning service project with corporate and student volunteers to support a local LGBTQ organization; an afternoon workshop and panel discussion with L.A. high school students, community leaders, activists and entertainers; an intimate evening concert at the GRAMMY MUSEUM; and an after-party hosted by THE STANDARD, DOWNTOWN LA.
Commented JACK ANTONOFF, who participated in the inaugural event in AUGUST, 2015: “Even though everyone can now marry in the U.S., discrimination, hate crimes, and homelessness disproportionately impact the LGBTQ community.
“I’ve always loved the innovative efforts of the GRAMMY MUSEUM, helping students use music as a gateway to learning and as a way to inspire and cultivate creativity and critical thinking. I’m thrilled THE ALLY COALITION has this opportunity to highlight artists using their position as a tool to make a difference.”
Executive Producer MICHAEL MATUZA added, “AUDIBLE IMPACT was created to promote service, education and conversation on social issues. We are delighted to be supporting the GRAMMY MUSEUM’s incredible work in music education and partnering with THE ALLY COALITION towards LGBTQ equality and ending discrimination.TIG NOTARO’s remarkable journey is inspiring to so many people. She is also smart, honest and flat-out funny.”
