  • Celebrate Music and Art!

    In celebration of Hmong American Day on May 14, 2021, we are excited to announce a new initiative we are working on to raise awareness of the Hmong-American Journey, Community Chords: Engagement through Music and Art. In addition to raising awareness of the Hmong-American journey, Community Chords will highlight the Hmong culture’s love of music, both leisurely and through traditional rituals.  

    Are you passionate about public art? We're seeking local artists to submit a design concept for Community Chords. Selected artists will use donated upright pianos as their canvases. The reinvented pianos will then be placed throughout the community to enjoy visually and play instrumentally throughout the month of May.
