What’s a Harmony for Humanity Concert?
The Fairmount String Quartet will perform our annual “Harmony for Humanity” concerts on Saturday, October 20th at 7:30 PM in the Chapel at the Presbyterian Church in Chestnut Hill and on Sunday, October 21st at 3:00 PM at All Saints Church in Princeton, NJ. These performances are part of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days.
Daniel Pearl was a journalist and violinist who used music to build bridges between cultures. In 2002 he was murdered by terrorists while investigating a story in Pakistan. Danny’s family and friends decided to continue his work of connecting people through music and communication by starting the Daniel Pearl Foundation.
Daniel Pearl World Music Days is an international network of concerts that uses the power of music to affirm our commitment to respecting differences and honoring our common humanity. Every October, we join musicians all over the world who dedicate their concerts to a shared belief in the power of music to lift people of different backgrounds and beliefs above the differences that set us apart. Since 2002, Daniel Pearl World Music Days has grown to include the participation of more than 13,900 performances in 140 countries.
We hope you will join us as we perform music of different cultures – music of joy, despair and, most importantly, hope.
As with all Fairmount String Quartet concerts, we suggest a donation of $25 for adults and $5 for students, but there is no admission fee for our performances. We want everyone to have the opportunity to experience this wonderful music and to be inspired to bridge cultural differences in their own lives.
