MOSAIC: A CONCERT AT MIDDLE CHURCH

This is the two year anniversary of the Mosaic concert series. This concert series is called Mosaic because the world and our lives can sometimes feel fractured or broken. But as we come together and center ourselves in Spirit through music and the arts, our beauty and strength is fierce. 

Mosaic was started after the 2016 election by Middle Church member, Matthew Johnson Harris, to raise money for non-profits who are working for people marginalized by the current administration. Past concerts have raised money for our Muslim, LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter partners and allies.
