"After silence, that which comes nearest
to expressing the inexpressible is music.""
Inspired by these words of Aldous Huxley, The September Concert was born in 2002 on the first anniversary of 9/11. Since then, on each anniversary our message of peace through music has spread further and further.
In 2009, we organized close to 200 concerts worldwide. Almost 100 across 31 US Cities from coast to coast joined us, including California, Hawaii, Illinois, Florida, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Utah.
Globally, we owe special thanks to our partner Sister Cities International and all our Global Affiliates whose commitment and tireless effort helped to spread our event to another 100 concerts across 45 countries including Morocco, Japan, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Italy and Ghana
