Description

The World Orchestra for Peace is a United Nations of musicians, made up of the leading players from the great orchestras around the world, who come together to make amazing music to promote the idea of a more peaceful world, was founded 25 years ago by the late Sir Georg Solti.

Performing without a conductor, which is very rare, twenty of the world’s leading string players representing 13 different nationalities will come together to promote Rotary International’s involvement in peace on UN World Peace day. All the first violinists are concert masters in their own right and each piece will be lead by a different 1st violinist,

This is a unique opportunity to see how these musicians come together and listen to each other to create amazing music.

Join us for an evening of classical music from a global orchestra.
