Event listing for Music Day II

Daniel Pearl was a talented violinist, fiddler and mandolin player who used his passion for music to form friendships across cultural and verbal divides. In every town, in every country, in which he lived he joined a band, orchestra or chamber group.

In the spirit of Danny's love of music and commitment to dialogue, the Foundation launched the First Annual Daniel Pearl Music Day in 2002, which was a resounding success. This year the number of events more than doubled, linking individuals and organizations of all types ranging from small bands of amateur musicians to symphony orchestras, using the power of music to promote tolerance and inspire respect for differences.

Plans are already in motion for the new year. With your help Daniel Pearl Music Day 2004 will be celebrated with nonstop global harmony for humanity.
