Idith Korman writes:

Dear Mr. Zick, 
We would like to invite you to our next concert, Black Lives Matter, and we hope that you can make it and be there. 

Ensemble Pi, renowned for its socially conscious programs, will present an evening of premieres and recent works in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. “Ensemble Pi strongly believes in the need for a more just society. With this concert, it wishes to mourn the dead and celebrate the living by presenting the work of living composers who have responded musically to systemic racism and police brutality.”
