2016 Tour on The Peace Train across America

Posted by on 10:40 pm in Uncategorized | 4 comments

Modeled on The Peace Train’s highly successful projects in South Africa which united people in a spirit of peace, respect and mutual understanding, The Peace Train 2016 Tour Across America: Diverse Voices Singing in Harmony, is bringing together youth and adults of all backgrounds to sing about their shared values and hopes for a better future for all. Ever since the August 2015 release of When Voices Meet, we’ve received impassioned calls from throughout the US. The film has inspired people to re-examine the issues currently dividing Americans and to do something constructive about improving human relations and social justice. Although the tour is primarily for youthful choirs/singers, we also welcome families and people of all ages who want to help sing, chaperone the youth, provide host homes at various stops, or assist with the tour logistics. Beginning in Ferguson and St. Louis, The Peace Train 2016 Tour Across America: Diverse Voices Singing in Harmony will give performances and pick up additional singers and supportive passengers at each stop along its route including Chicago, Cleveland, Albany, New York City, Jersey City, Trenton, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC.
