Statement from DOLCE Board of Directors

Desert Overture and Desert City Jazz stand in solidarity with our community in the call to end violence against black people. We grieve the loss of countless black lives stemming from more than four hundred years of systemic, violent racism. We are eternally grateful for the courage of black LGBTQ+ activists that led the gay liberation which allows for the existence of our bands today. Music teaches us every day that we must listen, practice, fail, and try over and over again in order to learn, grow, and become better. #BlackLivesMatter
