Our 2010 International Friendship Holiday Concert at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall was a tremendous success! A very warm thank you to all of the talented performers, distinguished guests and supporters of Harmony for Peace in attendance this past Sunday. We truly believe the friendships between the young artists of multicultural backgrounds created a harmony that echoed through Avery Fisher Hall with love and hope for a peaceful world. And of course, the performances were a wonderful way to get into the Holiday Spirit!
