Lend Your Voice to Avoice4Peace


The United Nations General Assembly established September 21 as the International Day of Peace. Join the Niles West Choir in celebrating this day of non-violence and cease-fire with a world-wide peace concert in conjunction with www.avoice4peace.org. The mission is simple: promote peace with a concert featuring choirs from around the world.

Niles West Choirs are inviting parents, faculty and staff to learn the peace song “Ukuthula” and record it with the choirs. Anyone willing to sing for peace is welcome.

Choir Parents and Guardians rehearsal is 7 to 8 p.m. on Monday, September 15 in the Band Room. Faculty and staff rehearsal is 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18 in the Choir Room. The Performance/Recording will take place from 3:10 to 3:45 on Friday, September 20 in the Niles West South Commons.
