Join us at the East Stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a community vigil honoring the memories of Elijah McClain and Mouhamed Cisse – to be together in our pain, grief, sorrow, and hope. To lift up voices of Black artists, musicians, composers, community members, friends, families, neighbors, youth.

8pm – performance by the Elegy for Justice ensemble
8:15pm – all instruments invited to join the ensemble for an “improvised harmonization”
