The New Manhattan Project: A Concert for Nuclear Abolition November 27, 2023 at 7:30pm - 9:30pm Eastern Time (US & Canada) The Japan Society 333 E 47th St New York, NY 10017 United States Contact person: Robert Croonquist
With music direction by jazz composer Sam Sadigursky and with Noah Diamond as tour guide, the concert is a journey to discover the nuclear legacy that New York City uniquely claims. Short videos of sites on the Nuclear NYC Map interweave with live performances by Sam Sadigursky, New York Taiko Aiko Kai, and MARK Harmony, a group of young singers from the Marshall Islands whose families were exiled due to devastation caused by US nuclear weapons tests.
The concert will highlight the creativity and activism in NYC that fuels the movement for nuclear abolition. Youth Arts New York / Hibakusha Stories, ICAN and NYCAN offer this event as Mexico hosts the 2nd Meeting of States Parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) at UN Headquarters.
