Awareness creates action and action saves lives. Music is one of the key tools we use to raise awareness of Peace Day 21 September. As well as being musical celebrations of peace, these events are an opportunity to thank all our supporters, highlight the extraordinary global Peace Day activities and promote the coming year.
