It may seem rather unlikely that six creative artists working within distinctly different genres and disciplines would appear on a stage together. Of course, it would not be unheard of to program a concert featuring a film and stage actor, a virtuoso classical musician, a jazz musician or two, a folk musician etc. but perhaps a bit unorthodox? That is exactly what's great about the SHE CAN BLOOM 2021 edition. We will travel (virtually speaking) into each of the artist's homes and we will watch and listen and connect. What an intimate experience this will be! No stage or fancy lighting and yet these acclaimed and accomplished artists will certainly be able to perform from home with a no-frills approach. We will fly from country to country via the internet and be entertained and inspired and moved. This is WHO we are and WHAT we do. We sing, we play, we act, we compose, we perform, we direct, we teach, we create.

TICKETS are by donation, with suggested minimum of $20.00. Please go << HERE >> to order tickets. All proceeds go directly to the artists. Note: each of the six artists will donate a portion of their performance fee to an organization/group of their own choosing in their respective countries in a "paying it forward" gesture.
