Live-streaming has become the most common alternative for live concerts for the time being, and many of these live-streams have used their platforms to raise money for several important causes. Rocky Mountain Virtual, presented by ARISE Music Festival, has announced Strings For Change, a benefit concert that will raise funds in the wake of the current unrest in America.
Rocky Mountain Virtual has become one of the forefront live-stream players in the Denver area, providing a platform for many local musicians. This newest concert will hone in on the following they have already created and use it for the sake of a cause they feel is important.
“Arise remains strongly committed to supporting those who need it most during these challenging times, in not only the arts and music communities but also in the larger fight against ongoing systemic racism and violence. We are honored to partner with Rocky Mountain Virtual to be able to provide a safe, positive and creative platform, to help raise awareness and funds to benefit causes that support real change in the world,” said John March, the Associate Producer Arise Music Festival.
The concert will be a five-hour event featuring Colorado strings bands Banshee Tree, Manos (ft. Michaela Borth), Quixotic and friends, and Spectacle, with proceeds from the event going to Black Lives Matter 5280.
