MUSIC FOR VISION is a unique partnership between HelpMeSee and Music for Life International--a global initiative that gathers the world's major musical traditions and artists as a powerful instrument to ensure that affordable treatment of cataract blindness is available in every corner of the world.

The Music For Vision India concerts will feature legendary sarod maestro and MFV Global Goodwill Ambassador, Amjad Ali Khan; Indian conductor and MFLI Artistic Director, George Mathew; renowned American violinist, Elmira Darvarova (the first woman ever to serve as Concertmaster of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York); and the Bombay Chamber Orchestra, which has brought orchestral music to Indian audiences for more than half a century. The concerts will feature iconic works by Indian and American composers, Amjad Ali Khan who will be the sarod soloist in his own Samaagam Concerto for Sarod and Orchestra, and the first Indian performances of Aaron Copland's historic Appalachian Spring Suite. These works testify to the power of community to enable the blossoming of healthy growth and transformation in society.
