Description

Last year marked the 250th anniversary since the creation of Waris Shah’s epic “Heer”; A timeless story of tragic love, and a metaphor for humanity’s quest for union with the Divine. We would like to invite you to recognize this influential moment in time with an evening of conversation, poetry, and music.

The eclectic program will begin with an academic dicussion between Dr. Anne Murphy and Madan Gopal SIngh, exploring the cultural and spiritual significance of Heer on Punjabi expression. This will be followed by a reception, which will include a customized menu by Tasty Indian Bistro, live art from local talent Don't Doze, and spoken word poetry. The evening will close with a concert performance by renowned musical artists Madan Gopal Singh and Chaar Yaar.

Please join us for a festive and inspiring evening!
