A night of music, film, and conversation

about the power of music to heal the individual and society!

(Both In-person and Live-stream options available!)

Hear three world-class musicians perform and speak about the power of music to heal the human soul. Project: Music Heals Us is a non-profit organization that brings the healing power of music to those in desperate need of the human connection and sense of community live music can provide. PMHU’s work in hospitals and prisons has earned recognition from musical luminaries like Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax; coverage by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the BBC; and has been highlighted in the recent Cannes Film Festival award-winning documentary The Sound of Us.

Dominic Cheli, Piano
Mr. Cheli’s recent Walt Disney Hall debut was described in the LA Times as “mesmerizing, he transfixed the audience… his fingers were one with each key.” And he has recently won a place on the coveted Concert Artists Guild roster.
Aubree Oliverson, Violin
Since making her concerto debut with the Utah Symphony at age 11, Aubrey Oliverson has continued to perform all over the world, most recently with the Pasadena Symphony. She will debut with the San Diego Symphony this April.
Andrew Janss, Cello
Andrew Janss is the Executive Director of PMHU. In that role, he was nominated by Yo-Yo Ma as a 2021 Emerson Collective Fellow for his work during the pandemic bringing one-on-one live-streamed concerts to over 10,000 individual patients in isolation. He is originally from Thousand Oaks, and is thrilled to be able to bring these world class artists to your doorstep!

*Please join us at 7:00 on the patio for conversation and drinks, plus a silent auction of Larry Janss’ beautiful photographs.
