On Thursday, Aug. 27th Grammy award-winning violinist, producer and humanitarian Miri Ben-Ari will launch her new show, Project B, at the Highline Ballroom.
Project B is an audio-visual entertainment experience and concert to inspire the next generation of leaders, in efforts to create change that can transform the global community for a better future. The concert aims to bring awareness to global challenges and United Nations sustainable development goals.
In a blog post, Ben-Ari wrote, “I created Project B because I believe in the power of music! Music speaks. Music connects. Music touches. Music motivates. Music inspires. Music is universal. I can not wait to share Project B with YOU at Highline Ballroom Aug. 27th.”
Known for her captivating show-stoppers, Ben-Ari has charmed audiences around the world with performances such as Aventura’s Sold Out at Madison Square Garden concert, VH1’s Save The Music Gala at Lincoln Center, Fashion Rocks at Radio City Music Hall, Sesame Street, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign, Viacom’s Dream Concert at Radio City Music Hall and the Martin Luther King Jr. Presidential memorial dedication in Washington, D.C.
In addition to being talented and racking up a number of accolades, Ben-Ari has a heart of gold. She has supported a slew of organizations such as UNICEF, FIBA (Fellowship of Israel and Black America), Phoenix House, NRB Convention and Aglow, the Jewish Federation, Russell Simmons’ philanthropic arts foundation and the Emery Awards.
She is also the founder and CEO of GEDENK, a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to educate, raise awareness and encourage self-expression among youth about anti-Semitism, racism and their brutal consequences.
In 2015, the 36-year-old received the first-ever “Girl Up Advocate Award from the United Nations Foundation and the 2015 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. Ben-Ari continues to promote The Gedenk Award For Tolerance campaign, now in its second year partnership with Scholastics Art and Writing, sponsored by GEDENK.
