The Oxford Concert for Peace - 2019


undefined

On 20th Anniversary of the launch of Peace One Day, Rotarians in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley in collaboration with The World Orchestra for Peace are proud to present The Oxford Concert for Peace. Twenty of the world’s leading string players from 15 different countries will come together to promote peace. This will be the first of only 3 performances world-wide featuring the orchestra in 2019

The World Orchestra for Peace (WOP), designated a UNESCO Artist for Peace in 2010, owes its existence to the vision of its founder Sir Georg Solti, a man who believed passionately in peace and the power of music and musicians to be powerful ambassadors for peace. Since 1995, around 400 leading musicians from many different countries have given their services to show the world that they, too, share Solti’s vision. 

Rotary International, among its many global commitments, promotes Peace, providing funding for the Rotary Peace Fellows’ programme: these courses are offered at six Universities around the world aiming to educate and inspire students to promote peace in their communities and further afield. Since 2000, more than 1100 students have graduated with Masters’ degrees in Peace and Conflict Resolution, and many are now active in promoting peace in diverse countries.  Some Peace Fellows will talk briefly about their experiences at the concert.
