Oct 26th, 2016 Diane Moser's Composers Big Band Annual Peace Concert and Tribute to Daniel Pearl World Music Days

Since 2011, Diane Moser’s Composers Big Band has presented a peace concert in the month of October as part of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days. Daniel Pearl, from Princeton, NJ and later Los Angeles, CA, was the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists in Pakistan February 22, 2002. Following his murder, Danny’s family and friends established the Daniel Pearl Foundation to carry on his legacy, using music and words to address the root causes of the hatred that took his life, with an entire month of worldwide “Harmony for Humanity” concerts. A classically trained violinist and an avid mandolin and guitar player (whether it be classical, rock, bluegrass or jazz), Danny used his passion for music to form friendships across cultural divides; he connected musical groups the world over, through every community that he lived in.
We dedicate this concert to all peoples, reminding us of the principles by which Danny lived, the universal power of music and our shared humanity.

We have amazing guest composers for this evening: Cynthia Hilts , Allison McKenzie, 
Charlie Dougherty, and Caleb Rumley..who has been composing special pieces for our last 2 peace concerts, and has composed another beautiful composition entitled "Pearl".  We also have amazing music from our resident composers: Marty Fogel, Matt Haviland, Rob Henke, Rob Middleton, Erick Storckman, Ed Xiques and yours truly.
