Musicians For Harmony will celebrate its 20th Anniversary on September 11, 2021 with an online and in-person concert at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City. The special event aims to elevate musical voices in the service of peace, health and equity to commemorate the victims of 9/11, Covid-19 and social injustice.
The two-hour concert will be one of the first in-person music events of the fall season post-Covid. Access to the online event will be free, and the in-person show will have paid tickets. The show will feature the music of Juilliard String Quartet, Kinan Azmeh (clarinet), ETHEL and Musique Sans Frontières. Composers will include Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ulysses Owens, Jr, James “Kimo” Williams, Robert Mirabal, Patrick Derivaz, Pat Irwin and John King. Line-up is subject to change.
For many years, Musicians For Harmony has been a part of the New York cultural landscape, anchored by an original mission of pursuing peace through music. This worthy organization has been featured in The New York Times, New Yorker, Associated Press, Time Out NY, NY Daily News, Crain’s New York and many others.
The upcoming concert marks not only the 20th anniversary of M4H, but also of the attacks of 9/11/2001. This will also be the first performance in M4H history to be broadcast live online to both a national and international audience (all previous events were limited to in-person, New York City attendees.)
Tickets for the online event will be free of charge, and concertgoers will be encouraged to donate to organizations helping artists affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
