Amplifying Solidarity: A Northrop Plaza Series | Daniel James Felton
84 Church St SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455
Spend the last four Thursdays of summer lounging or lunching on Northrop Plaza while listening to music by spectacular Minnesota artists! A collaboration between Northrop, Radio K, Welcome Week, Multicultural Student Engagement, and the School of Music, Amplifying Solidarity is a program of free outdoor concerts with the intent to use music to lift the voices of people who have been marginalized and to welcome our community back to campus after more than a year of physical distancing and social unrest. These free concerts featuring Black and Indigenous artists will take place on Northrop’s Plaza Stage.
A 2021 Finalist for the Gospel Music Choice Awards in the Instrumental Artist of the Year category, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel James Felton recently released his EP, Breath of God.

“In a time where people are going through so much and can’t breathe, the breath of God can be there to give us the air that we need to breathe.”
