TOGETHER, WE WILL MOVE FORWARD
Since the early morning hours of October 9, our community has been struck by devastating fires that have ripped through our neighborhoods. Many of us experienced the damage of the fires firsthand, including 50 Sonoma State students, faculty, and staff who lost their homes. Our thoughts are with the many people who are impacted.
We are extremely thankful for the efforts made by the first responders, the care displayed by those who volunteered their time and resources, and the dedication shown by countless employees across the CSU system who came here from throughout the state to share their time and skills. Some GMC staff took part in the EOC efforts here on campus. Others volunteered countless hours at evacuation shelters across the region. Thank you for the grit and grace displayed in the midst of such devastation. We have never been more proud to be a part of the Sonoma State family.
Across the Sonoma State University Campus, our recovery efforts are all under the banner of #NomaCares. If you or someone you know would like to attend a concert at Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center through the month of October, but have been impacted by the fires in any way, please know that money is not our primary concern. We seek to be a haven of peace in a time of deep hurt. All are welcome – pay as you can, come as you are. To access tickets, please use the promo code NomaCares.
As you are able, please join us in the coming weeks as we gather as a community to find refuge through the comfort of music.
Best wishes from the Green Music Center family to yours.
