Join us for this evening of music with a live performance by Dylan Connor who has been composing and singing songs inspired by the Syrian crisis since 2011. He has performed at dozens of rallies and fundraisers for Syria including events in Washington DC, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Toronto, and Chicago. Dylan composed the song “Man of Peace” for the Oscar contending film “Little Gandhi” about Syrian peace activist Ghyiath Mattar. Finally, his newest song “If Only You’d Listen,” written from the perspective of a child living with war, has over 3 million views.
