The Harmony for Peace Foundation, www.harmonyforpeace.org, seeks to promote cross-cultural understanding through the arts, in particular music, serving as a bridge among nations to promote mutual respect and a common path to world peace. Through performances, exhibitions, events and advocacy they stand for a united voice of reason against nuclear proliferation across the globe.
