Daniel Pearl World Music Days

The Daniel Pearl World Music Days is a month-long event, beginning October 1, that includes a series of world-wide benefit concerts to promote peace and tolerance. The concerts, in which all musicians' participation is welcome, honor the efforts of the late Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Pearl was a musician, and so music has become one means through which the Daniel Pearl Foundation honors Pearl's memory. The Foundation was established after Pearl's death to promote cross-cultural understanding in journalism, music, and an array of innovative communications.

On Saturday, October 3, musicians and an 80-member choir representing 17 different faith backgrounds, will be offering residents of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area "One Humankind: An Evening with Mosaic Harmony", hosted by the Quixote Center's Nicaraguan Cultural Alliance. The live event, with Maureen Fiedler, host of the radio show Interfaith Voices, will be held in Bethesda, Md., at River Road Unitarian Church, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($25 per adult) may be purchased by mail through Interfaith Voices, P.O.Box 5031, Hyattsville, MD 20782; or online at
