4th Annual Children's Gathering for Peace
Center Mural Amphitheatre
Please join us for singing and dance performances by a wonderful diversity of children's performance groups. All ages welcome. Featured performers include:
This songfest invites the participation of everyone! Children from around the world will perform in dance and song. The event will be woven together by group singing of all who come. Kofi Anang, a local drummer from Ghana, will accompany the singing on djembe. Local school children will help Mary K. McNeill lead everyone in song.
The event will culminate in the singing of "We Are Children of Peace", a song Mary K. wrote with the help of her students. The song has been recorded in five languages and is part of a larger project to communicate with children all over the world that children here want to be friends and create a peaceful world with children everywhere.
A new world culture is being formed with the children leading the way! Come, join us as we create a world that turns in beauty, dance, and song, and hear what the children of the world have to say!
We will be filming the children singing "We Are Children of Peace" in Farsi, which will then be aired on television in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and India!
This event is sponsored by the Seattle Center
