AlmaNova plays Benefit for Bosnian Orphans hosted By Annette Bening

Dear Friends:

On behalf of the Democracy Council and Bosana Foundation, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend “Sound of the Balkans, Music that transcends boundaries and divisions” to be held on 22 May, 2010 at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Los Angeles.

All proceeds collected from the event, including the sale of tickets will go towards a scholarship fund for a number of exceptional young adults living at the orphanages all over Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) that would like to pursue university education. The program will cover university costs, a small stipend and, if necessary, the housing costs. Our goal is to give these young adults the skills and opportunity to become self-reliant and productive citizens of their country. We are expecting approximately thirty (30) people to participate in the pre-event cocktail party and over three hundred (300) to attend the concert.

The featured musicians include Rade Serbedzija and Miroslav Tadic, AlmaNova and special guest appearances. The event will be a rich cultural evening, filled with music from various parts of the Balkan region. We will have three distinguished performances each with a slight variation and adaptations of added worldly cultures and sounds. In addition, American actress Annette Bening will give a special performance at the main event.

The Democracy Council is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization based in Los Angeles that will provide tax-deductible letters for any generous donations. Bosana Foundation is an organization that has worked two years with a number of orphanages in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
