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.
The Harmony For Peace Foundation was founded in 2009, thus celebrating our Fifth Anniversary. As we look back to our beginning, it is very humbling but at the same time it brings a sense of pride and joy that we have made it through our first five years. This is of course due to the people who support us, help us, advise us and encourage us in many ways and that makes us go forward with big strides. We thank you for your continued and warm support. Our BIG THANK YOU to you all.
To celebrate this special year, on Saturday April 26, we are holding a benefit event “Peace and Tranquility” at the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden. Please join us to celebrate the occasion! You can find more details here.
Last September, we presented our first International Peace Day Concert in Philadelphia, “The City of Brotherly Love” with the strong message of non-violence and unity through music by many young artists. We were able to work with over 160 young performers joined from both in and out of the United States, bringing a beautiful harmony for peace onto the stage of the Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center of the Performing Arts. We were so encouraged with the large attendance that enjoyed the concert, our second International Peace Day Concert will be staged again at the Verizon Hall on September 20 this year. We will be making an announcement of the performers very soon. Please click here for more details.
Excited by this strong bond and unity of music by so many young artists in Philadelphia, we are planning our Peace Concert in Tokyo, Japan this year. Again the details will be soon published on this website. All of our friends in Japan, please look out for this exciting news soon!
Our New Global Peace Campaign, “From Guns to Butterflies for Peace” will be launched shortly and will be an initiative of an art competition and online exhibition. This is another opportunity where everyone can participate. So look out for the “How to Participate” in your email soon!
In 2014, we ask for your continued warm and strong support for Harmony For Peace!
With gratitude, much peace and harmony
