Musicians For Harmony returns to Merkin Hall at Kaufman Music Center on September 11, 2021, to celebrate its 20th Anniversary with an online and in-person concert. This special event aims to elevate musical voices in the service of peace, health and equity to commemorate the victims of 9/11, Covid-19 and social injustice. The concert will feature performances by The Juilliard String Quartet, Kinan Azmeh and his CityBand, ETHEL and Musique Sans Frontières.
