The Chattanooga Boys Choir celebrated World Peace Day on Thursday, September 21 by presenting "Symphony of the Heart: Songs for the International Day of Peace" at Barger Academy and East Ridge Elementary schools. Pieces of Andre Thomas, Rollo Dilworth, Jim Papoulis, and others, as well as the #AVoice4Peace inspired "Ukuthula" with hundreds of AMAZING elementary school students. Thank you, Kevin Fenton, for the inspiration, to Charlene Potts and Michael Mitchel for their assistance and incredible devotion to their students and schools, and the CBC staff for their work with our CBC ambassadors of peace!
"***In my heart I can hear it…I hear a symphony.
All of the instruments are playing the same song.
As different as they may be, they all work together in harmony. Imagine the world as a symphony.***
***Lift ev’ry voice and let us sing! In ev’ry song let freedom ring! From ev’ry soul comes a noble dream.
Let justice roll like a mighty stream.***
***I dream a world where man no other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth and peace its paths adorn, I dream.***
*** When I close my eyes then I can see; when I close my eyes I'm alive. When I close my eyes then I can see; and I am not afraid. When I try to see the reasons why, if I ever could understand. When I find the hope to let me try, and I am not afraid.**
***Hine ma tov uma na'im, shevet achim gam yachad (How good it is for brothers and sisters to dwell together in peace)***
