KAMELOT To Participate In The Daniel Pearl World Music Days Foundation Global Concert
April 6, 2013, a year ago
Florida-based KAMELOT have checked in with the following update:
"We are very pleased and honored to be invited once again to participate in the Daniel Pearl World Music Days Foundation. World Music Days Honorary Committee members' concerts included Elton John in Las Vegas, Herbie Hancock in Japan, Tania Libertad in Mexico, Itzhak Perlman in New York City and many more!"
On February 22nd, 2002, the day after the world learned that kidnapped Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl had been brutally murdered by his captors in Pakistan, conductor George Pehlivanian, Danny's neighbor and friend from Paris, was scheduled to lead the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra as a guest conductor. Deeply troubled by the news, he was initially reluctant to perform; however, he decided to go ahead with his concert (which he proudly dedicated to Danny), rather than give in to the despair wrought by the evil inflicted on Danny.
"As the orchestra played Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, I finally understood the triumph of hope over despair," said Pehlivanian. It was an emotional and exultant concert, ending with 15 minutes of sustained applause.
After Danny's funeral in August 2002, in the spirit of his love for music, his family decided to inspire hope and unity by inviting people everywhere to dedicate a musical event on the day he would have turned 39 years old - October 10, 2002. Thus, the seeds were planted for Daniel Pearl World Music Days - now an entire month of worldwide "Harmony for Humanity" concerts - which reminds the world of the principles by which Danny lived, the universal power of music and our shared humanity.
