2020 has been a memorable year. While it may not be marked as a good year, nevertheless, at EPIC we are grateful for all the silver linings it has brought. We are thankful that it brought us appreciation for the important aspects of life, those things that identify humanity - love, kindness, and sharing with those we care about. Despite the pandemic, we took a chance of launching with the belief that music is therapeutic and has a great power to unite people for good. Our launch, of course, would not be possible without you. You helped us bring to fruition something necessary during this time - innovative, fine, and LIVE music.
