Songs of Hope is an international performance group of youth, ages 10 to 22, from around the world. The performers will wear their native, traditional dress while singing songs and dancing to Motown, rock, blues, world and folk music. This year Songs of Hope has collaborated with IARP to welcome the first-ever Iraqi participants to the program.
Songs of Hope co-founder Jeanne Junge said, “It’s interesting, with young artists from Vietnam, Russia, China and Iraq coming this summer, Songs of Hope will have a lot of children from former enemies of the United States on stage, making music together, enjoying themselves, and ? we hope – inspiring their audiences to think thoughts of peace not war.”
Join us on July 28 for a concert with Songs of Hope and reception afterwards with the Songs of Hope participants and IARP.
