This film sponsored by Ben & Cynthia Gordon.

Filmed over the course of 2.5 months, across five countries, in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this groundbreaking film helps define the magic of music, in an epic celebration of hope, humanity and unity. It aims to give voice and sound to the inexplicable, exploring not only the impact of music on our current environment and existence but also its historical impact through varied seasons of humanity.

“The Sound of Us” weaves inspiring stories about the beauty and goodness of music with interviews and performances by artists such as Ben Folds, Sarah McLachlan, Avery*Sunshine, Eric Whitacre, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Hiromi, Antonio Sanchez, Butch Walker, Will Wells, Patti Smith, Sekou Andrews and many more. Combined, these powerful vignettes illustrate how music heals us, gives us hope for the future through our children, keeps our heritage and history alive, allows us to have the most difficult of conversations, sheds light on current struggles, and continues to invite us back to the thing that unites us all – music.
