BAWAR would like to give a big thank you to San Francisco State’s Wind Ensemble for its fundraiser for BAWAR. On Thursday, March 20, 2014, the Wind Ensemble held a world premiere of “Dreams Haunt Me”, a piece composed and conducted by Brad Hart for a friend of his who is a survivor. As an article in the Golden Gate Express says,
The piece, haunting and dark, conveys the feelings of the girl left traveling this unwarranted journey and coping with the new feelings and insecurities it carries. By the end of the song, the audience was on their feet, shouting “bravo” as Hart bowed and was thanked for presenting a powerful piece that so many people could relate to.
Thank you again to the San Francisco State Wind Ensemble for its support of sexual assault survivors. To read more about the concert, go to the Golden Gate Express article.
