The motivation behind "Harmony for Peace" reaches beyond national boundaries. Staged every year since 1991 in cities such as Vienna, Hiroshima and Tokyo, the Concert for World Peace seeks to inspire harmony among nations and faiths, as well as groups divided by creeds and political leanings.
In a tranquil part of the bustling metropolis of Hiroshima, Japan, a Peace Memorial has been dedicated to a Swiss doctor and an American journalist who journeyed to the crippled city after the war to help victims of the bomb. A monument now stands in their honor, acknowledging their contribution to humanity and their effort to blur national borders to serve all who needed help.
A "Harmony for Peace" concert is designed to establish a different kind of memorial to a global vision: a meeting of minds and a joining of hands, guided by the light of hope.
Ms. Tomoko Torii, Founding Partner, President and Executive Director of the Harmony for Peace Foundation and Ms. Yasuko Mitsui, Honorary Advisor and Founding Partner of the Foundation visit the Hiroshima Memorial Park on March 12, 2010.

Harmony for Peace, A Charity Concert to promote World Peace supporting the nuclear non-proliferation through Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
On May 16, 2010 artists from six countries joined at Carnegie Hall to promote peace in a world without nuclear weapons. Their talents and voices united in honor of the 2010 Non-Proliferation Review Conference at the United Nations and elevated the cries of people everywhere who support nuclear disarmament and improved international trust. The Peace Concert will be held every five years to show support to the UN Non-Proliferation Treaty and its Review Conference held every five years.
Harmony For Peace aims to achieve a common goal: World Peace through earnest voices embodied in words and the universal language of music and poetry. "One Voice One World"
