The concert series, titled Our Hearts Beat for Birmingham, features ASOM as they perform four concerts at three different venues with two unique programs.

What’s truly special about the concert series is that it benefits three local nonprofits:

  • Collat Jewish Family Services: strives to enhance the quality of life and strengthen independence for individuals and families of older or disabled adults by providing exceptional support services in accordance with Jewish values.
  • Jefferson County Memorial Project: a grassroots, citizen-led organization that focuses on uncovering and reconciling racial terror and racial violence that is a part of the county’s past.
  • Mitchell’s Place: a comprehensive autism treatment center and early learning preschool program serving children ages 2-6.
