It’s a Small World, Right?
A virtual concert with performers from around the globe

It’s a Small World, Right?

The Covid pandemic makes the world seem very small.  While we’ve been unable to hold a concert in a theater, we’ve found an unexpected opportunity to expand our reach with virtual concerts. And so, our “Small World” concert will include artists from various parts of the world. Our performers feature songs and dance from Brazil, Japan, France, the Netherlands, Greece, South Africa, Italy, India, Ireland and the good ol’ USA. We guarantee an uplifting and joyful time. Guest speakers Jacob Sands, MD and Nian Sun, PhD discuss the importance of early detection research. Our proceeds will be invested in the Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute’s research on the epidemiology of lung cancer in young people. (Learn more about this research with our April “BACKSTAGE @ UPSTAGE” podcast.)


BONUS: Afterwards, join us for a live, Fireside Chat (don’t worry you won’t be seen, but can chat). Don’t miss conversation with Bonnie Addario, survivor and advocate; Jordan Rich, Broadcaster; Jacob Sands, MD, Thoracic Oncologist; Nian Sun, PhD, researcher; John Berman, musician, Brazil; Hildy Grossman, survivor, advocate and singer. A link comes when you register for the concert.


Registration for this online event is free, but donations are encouraged. We appreciate whatever you can contribute.
