A world-wide peace awareness project
The United Nations General Assembly established September 21 as the International Day of Peace. We’re celebrating this day of non-violence and cease-fire with a world-wide peace concert.
On September 21, 2016 musicians from all over the world will sing ‘Ukuthula’, a traditional African peace hymn. The Nairobi Chamber Chorus and members of the Festival Singers of Florida will lead this song at a peace concert in Kenya, while choirs from all over the world will submit their own recordings of the piece to YouTube.
The end result will be a bold statement to anyone who will listen that moments of peace can be achieved through unity and song.

Submitted recordings may be selected to be used in a documentary about the power of music to foster unity and compassion.
A Voice 4 Peace at Berkner
BHS will be hosting a recording on September 21, 2016 from 4:30-6:00 in the auditorium. We will learn, rehearse, and record the song on that day.
All staff and students are invited to join us, regardless of your singing experience. We don’t care if you can’t carry a tune in a bucket! The message here is unity and peace, not perfection.
Because the recording will be posted to YouTube, students MUST bring a signed Media Release form in order to sing with us. Get one from the choir room, or print one online here.
Rehearsal STARTS at 4:30. You will need to arrive early in order to turn in your form.
Please wear a Berkner shirt.
It would be amazing to see our entire Berkner family flooding the stage to sing for peace! Help us spread the word!
