Join fellow Rhodes Scholars for the first Rhodes Open Skype Night! “Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” In the spirit of these words from Elton John, we believe that music and the arts can support our community to stay connected and help us to deal with an unprecedented crisis.
