Summermusik’s We Are One festival series began in October 2022. We Are One’s mission is to amplify under consulted voices by acknowledging historical and contemporary inequities and celebrating unique cultures through music, art, and dialogue. The festival’s vision is to broaden our repertoire, partnerships, and venues in order to increase our community’s cultural consciousness and acknowledge that art is a reflection of the realities of society.
