Pianist Miki Sawada travels to all 50 states with a piano in a van, performing for free in community gathering spaces, and documenting the strengths and charms of American life discovered along the way.

Gather Hear Tour’s mission is to bring high quality live classical music to communities across the country in this time of deep division, when we can’t help but feel that there is no shared humanity across the nation. We believe classical music has a special power to connect us through an elevated and moving experience; we need to harness that power now to begin to truly understand and listen to each other.
