Welcome!

This September, Her Royal Airship Ashanti and Midwest Black Speculative Fiction Alliance are joining forces to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic anime Cowboy Bebop and we want you to be part of the action! We’re uniting the nerd and geek communities for a tribute jazz concert to the show’s music…and more importantly, to raise money for a great cause!
 
Melodic Connections is the brainchild of Executive Director Betsey Zenk Nuseibeh, who in 2008, dreamt of running a nonprofit that teaches children and young adults with developmental disabilities about the world around them through music. Nearly 10 years later, the organization has helped several thousand individuals and their families across the Tri-State! Through this themed charity event, our organizations will support Melodic Connections while celebrating a show near and dear to our hearts.
