New Music on the Bayou board members Mel Mobley and Tina Mullone (M2) hosted A Concert of Inclusion on January 20, 2017.
From the artists: “M2 and friends…celebrate the vision of a world that is inclusive and diverse, an America that builds up rather than tears down, and an arts community that is committed to the exploration of life’s possibilities. With music, dance, and poetry we…reject the darker views championed on this day and any other.”
