Jenavieve wrote and performed an original composition for The Big Quiet's mass meditation in the One World Observatory, the highest point in the Western Hemisphere. There were over 2,000 people in attendance, spread across the three floors of the observatory. Jenavieve played for the VIP crowd on the top floor, while the rest of her quartet was stationed on the lower floors. The observatory had to be rewired for sound, such that the quartet could hear each across the three floors.

Strisvara is cross-cultural program designed to unite female musicians from around the world, converging in one place to create music. As a cultural ambassador from the USA, Jenavieve lived amongst the Soliga tribe in the Biligiriranga Hills, a tiger preserve in the jungles of Southern India. The tribe not only passes down their history through music, but they also have songs that help their daily lives, like calming bees when they are collecting honey.

The Big Quiet is a mass meditation movement for modern people. They host giant moments of silence in unique spaces and places -- this particular one was at the Lincoln Center's legendary Appel Room, which overlooks Central Park. Jenavieve collaborated with spoken-word artist Alysia Harris to compose and perform a piece to serenade the group after their meditative silence.
