International Day of Peace Celebration~ A FREE event

Yoga - Meditation - Family Concert - Kids’ Activities

Join Music Together and many local partners for a free family festival to celebrate world peace on the United Nations International Day of Peace, September 21, 2013. Enter Hartford's beautiful Elizabeth Park for a day of family, music, and community.

They will start the day like they do at the United Nations, with the ringing of bells performed by The Conduit Center of East Hartford. The celebration will culminate with an incredible version of Music Together’s classic song for peace, “May All Children.” In between, stretch to the sky with a morning meditation led by West Hartford Yoga. Raise your voice along with local band Auburn Mode and Music Together recording artist “Uncle Gerry” Dignan. Hear inspiring words from local State Senator Beth Bye.
