The aim is for ‘pop up’ performances to take place across the world on the afternoon of Sunday 10th November with everyone performing on or before 3pm UK time (4pm Central European Time) and sharing on social media using the hashtag #iPlay4Peace.
Last year, musicians in 45 locations from Ieper to Pisa, across England and Scotland, in the US to China, from Albania to Kosovo, Shetland to South Africa, Turkey to Uganda came together to play a single piece of music to serve as a symbolic gesture of cooperation, peace and reconciliation 100 years after First World War came to an end.
Once again we want to link together people on their own, in groups, or bands, ensembles or orchestras to play one or more of three works composed for this year's event.
The project returns for a second year on 10 November 2019, with organisers again hoping to link individuals, groups, bands, ensembles, and orchestras to play one or more of three works composed for this year's event:
- Battling for Peace, for symphony orchestra, by Anthony White (view score)
- Good Friday Agreement, for SATB choir, by Clare Paddi Salters (view score)
- Winning the Peace, for solo violin, by Paul Anderson (view score)
