Some of the top classical musicians in Boston are getting together for a night of music. The artists are diverse, but the theme of the music will be singular: wandering, the journey of those who've had to leave their home.

The Saturday night event in Brookline, "A Song for Syria," is a benefit concert for Doctors Without Borders. The journey is that of the refugees who've had to leave their homes across Syria, which remains ravaged by war. Syrians are joined by many others in that struggle to find a safe place to restart their lives.

Joel Cohen, from Camerata Mediterranea/Boston Camerata and an organizer of the intercultural concert, joined WBUR's All Things Considered.

This segment aired on November 11, 2016.
