Music for Changing Times
Presented by Music2Life and the Rubicon Theatre Company
Music for Changing Times was a landmark benefit concert for Music2Life, an organization dedicated to fostering social change through music. One Foot was brought on board to research and develop the script for Music for Changing Times—which was presented in Ventura, California by the Rubicon Theatre Company—and offer production consultation for the show. Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul, and Mary headlined the event, which also included performances from artist-activists Decora, Aisha Fukushima, Naima Shalhoub, and Tem Blessed. Incorporating archival news footage, spoken word, storytelling, and song, Music for Changing Times perfectly captured the mission of Music2Life: to amplify the voices of contemporary activist-artists and highlight the impact that music continues to have in social justice movements around the world.
