On March 12, at Hiroshima Memorial Park
"When we stepped out of our car, there was a stream of voice singing and then we came upon a sight of young students assembled in front of Sadako's Statue at Hiroshima Memorial Park. Immediately we approached them and asked them whether we can hear them sing again. With their permission we recorded their singing. It was one of the most memorable moments of my life." Tomoko Torii
In conjunction with the Harmony For Peace Foundation's First International Peace Art Exhibition, a series of benefit events for Japan Relief were held at Chelsea Art Musuem in New York from June 3rd to 5th. A group of artist friends of Harmony for Peace presented wonderful programs of beautiful music.
Our International Peace Day Concert 2013 was held with a big success!
Dear Friends of Harmony For Peace:
Thank you for your warm and generous support for our International Peace Day Concert held on September 21 at Verizon Hall, Kimmel Center of the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.
I wish to express my sincere thanks to all who came to the concert, sent in their support and cheered us with warm encouragements. We were thrilled to note that we were able to celebrate the Peace Day along with over 160 performing artists and 800 guests in the audience. The concert was filled with love and unity calling for peace in the world for a global day seeking nonviolence and cessation of conflicts and hostilities.
The concert brought tears to many and it was indeed a moving experience for everyone at the concert. Our sincere appreciation to all the performers, music directors, partnering organizations, guests, volunteers and of course, Kimmel center's production crew.
Particularly, we were very grateful to our special guests, Yaron Kohlberg and Bishara Haroni of “Duo Amal,” who traveled from Europe to joined us and performed for us. (more information)
We believe this occasion brought many people a great friendship and understanding. We believe everyday should be a Peace Day, and at the concert together, we promised to make an effort to make every day a Peace Day.
