National Braille Press to Host Virtual “Beats for Braille” Concert

April 23, 2020

             Precious Perez


To celebrate National Volunteer Week, National Braille Press (NBP) is hosting “Beats for Braille,” a virtual concert, this Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 7:00pm. 17 blind musicians are donating their time to entertain and share their stories on why braille and braille literacy are important to them.  There will be a range of music played from pop and parodies to rap and blues, something for everyone to enjoy.

Spearheading this effort is Precious Perez, a senior at Berklee College of Music, who is bringing together young musicians from across the country for this event. She has a double-major in music education and vocal performance. On top of going to online classes, Precious has been working tirelessly on the “Beats for Braille” project to support braille literacy. For a preview of Saturday’s concert, listen to Precious at the NBP Gala in 2015 by clicking here.
