Daniel Pearl World Music Days the month of October

The Daniel Pearl Foundation is honored to invite you to participate in the 8th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days October 1-31, 2009, a global network of events promoting peace and understanding through the language of music. This year, we already have a growing list of more than 500 registered events and we hope to add yours to this global map!

World Music Days, which coincides with Daniel’s October 10 birthday, is an awareness-raising initiative, not a fund-raising program. There is no fee to participate. A simple registration of your event(s) at http://www.danielpearlmusicdays.org and the site will confirm your participation and promote your event(s) worldwide. Once you register your event(s), participation entails a shout out from the stage, or a mention in the printed program, in support of the “Harmony for Humanity” theme at your scheduled October performances.

For the past seven years, thousands of professional and amateur musicians have joined this expanding network of concerts to honor the legacy of journalist/musician Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal South Asia Bureau Chief, who was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists
in Pakistan shortly after 9/11. These concerts commemorate Pearl’s lifework by using music to spread a message of hope, unity and “Harmony for Humanity.”

FMI and to confirm your participation, visit the website listed above. There you will find many links, one of which is to NPR where Daniel’s mother Ruth Pearl reads from an essay she wrote.
