New York, NY (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
The September Concert Foundation is proud to announce its 9th Annual September Concert, which will take place worldwide from September 10 – 12, 2010. As done in the past 8 years, these concerts will take place in designated performance spaces, including public parks and concert halls, in cities around the world. These music events have the sole purpose of joining people together worldwide to “celebrate peace and humanity through music.”
This is the first year that The September Concert will take place over 3 days instead of just one day. Haruko Smith founded the September Concert Foundation in 2002 to turn September 11th into something positive. “We provide the perfect answer to help people see a meaningful way to mark 9/11 as the day the seed for peace was planted. New York City should feel good about how this day gave birth to this positive tradition.”
Gearing up for their 10th year anniversary in 2011, The September Concert Founder Haruko Smith is “looking to increase the participation of children.” She has recruited the fifth grade chorus of PS 22, a public school in New York City, whose video performances of pop songs became a YouTube sensation and garnered millions of fans, including celebrities Ashton Kutcher, Rihanna, Perez Hilton, Tori Amos, Queen Latifah, and Oprah. Smith believes that children symbolize the growing “culture of peace”.
Since its birth in April 2002, The September Concert has grown steadily to global proportions. In 2009, 200 September Concert events took place in over 40 U.S. cities and in 45 international cities in 4 continents around the world, including London, Rome, Casablanca, Dubai, Obuasi (Ghana), and Tokyo. The Foundation welcomes musicians from any age and genre. Past concerts have included jazz, classical, gospel, pop and rock. Participants have included the famed Young People’s Chorus of NYC and internationally acclaimed conductor Lorin Maazel.
The September Concert Advisory Board today includes Quincy Jones, Christy Turlington Burns, Howard J. Rubenstein, among many other household names.
The September Concert Foundation invites musicians from all walks of life to participate in the 2010 events. For more details and to register your concert, go to http://www.septemberconcert.org. Deadline to register is August 13, 2010.
