On 21st September 2019 – the 20th Anniversary of Peace One Day – The World Orchestra for Peace performed at The Oxford Concert For Peace 2019 – a special concert at the iconic Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford.
The orchestra is comprised of musicians from around the world who are the “crème de la crème” in their field. Many of the violinists are leaders in prestigious world orchestras.
Between the musical pieces, Rotary Peace Fellows told their personal stories and explained why they wanted to become Peace Fellows.
Having the stories interspersed with music was awe inspiring. The orchestra was previously unaware of Rotary’s Peace Fellowship program, but the concert brought together two international organisations working in their own unique ways to promote peace.
