This Sold-Out concert of some 3,000 music enthusiasts is unique, in that it will include over 100 students from more than 50 countries, performing together for the very first time, in the name of peace!
The September concert is the culmination of a month-long program run by WPO that is dedicated to empowering young people from countries around the world, as there will be young musicians from Iraq, Libya, Rwanda, Haiti, Kosovo, Kenya, Uganda, Georgia, Mexico, Ethiopia, Vietnam and more, all spreading their message of peace through music and serving as young leaders in their own communities. For many of the students, especially those from conflict regions, the program marks their first trip to the United States.
