United StatesThe Music for Peace Project is a global effort to fill the world with music as a call for peace. By coordinating a vast number of concerts worldwide between April 8-10, 2005, The Music for Peace Project will bring popular and media attention to international peace efforts while building a global community of active, socially conscious artists. Dedicated to cultivating peace as both a means and an end, The Music for Peace Project creates a global celebration of peace and provides a voice for the vibrant community that believes in peaceful solutions for the future.
Last February, the Musicians' Alliance for Peace sponsored 73 concerts in 13 countries in 50 hours during the first annual Music for Peace Project. This international, non-partisan call for peace included music from all over the world, shared with audiences as diverse as the music itself.
To help us reach our goal this year of 500 concerts spanning every continent in three days, we are asking musicians worldwide to perform in the name of peace between April 8-10, 2005, or to dedicate a pre-existing concert to the project. All you have to do is fill out a simple 30-second online form: any musician can participate.
Music has the power to inspire compassion and foster understanding between cultures while deepening the bonds that form our communities. Please consider joining this effort and help create a global community of musicians that cannot be ignored.
