Philip Glass will be performing a benefit concert for the Garrison Institute on July 19, 2012 at 7 pm at the Garrison Institute. For more information and to buy tickets, visit the Garrison Institute website:

Philip Glass (piano) performs, “Mad Rush,” a piece originally written and performed by Glass in honor of the Dalai Lama’s visit to North America in 1979. Glass begins by remarking that the legacy of Gandhi can be seen in the work of leaders, including Martin Luther King Jr. and the Dalai Lama, who advocate for nonviolent, social change and by inviting listeners to consider “Mad Rush” as a play between wrathful and peaceful deities. Performance at “Satyagraha: Gandhi’s ‘Truth Force’ in the Age of Climate Change” presented by the Garrison Institute on April 13, 2008 at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
