Daniel Pearl World Music Days Concert 2017

October 22, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

 

Daniel Pearl World Music Days Concert (October 22, Mount Olive Lutheran Church Presented by the Music Students’ Service League of the MTAC – West Los Angeles)

The Daniel Pearl Foundation works to promote cross-cultural dialogue and understanding, both domestically and internationally, to counter cultural and religious intolerance, and to inspire unity and friendship through journalism, music, and dialogue.

Daniel Pearl was born on October 10, 1963 in New Jersey and grew up in Los Angeles. He was a Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and murdered by extremists in Pakistan in early 2002, just four months after 9/11. However, he is remembered as a symbol of hope: a man who built bridges between diverse cultures, a writer and a gifted musician. For him, music was the vital form of expression that led him to become involved in several bands all around the globe. He was a true citizen of the world and an embodiment of human values. His death, like his life, inspires millions of people to strive for decency and cultural understanding. His family and friends established the Daniel Pearl Foundation to carry on his legacy, using music and words to address the root cause of the hatred that took his life.

Daniel Pearl recognized the ability of music to bridge differences among people. In the spirit of his love of music and commitment to dialogue, the Daniel Pearl Foundation launched the first Daniel Pearl World Music Days on October 10, 2002, which would have been his 39th birthday. Using the power of music to promote tolerance and inspire respect for differences, the Daniel Pearl World Music Days have grown to include more than 13,400 performances in 138 countries.
