“We All Belong Here” is a concert showcasing the work of local AAPI composer-performers.

  • Nathan Tanouye (composer/arranger for Celine Dion, top-call trombonist & UNLV professor)
  • Leo Berenguel (multi-faceted keyboardist, composer & educator)
  • Summer Kodama (award-wining bassist/composer & diversity/inclusion activist)

These composers will be further supported by friends, Jorge Machain (trimpet), Sam Ramirez (guitar) and Michael Hoffman (drums).

There will be 2 sets at 8:15PM and 9:15PM.
