Here's a little bit about us:
On Sept. 25,2002 Jazz Pianist and
Vocalist Rick DellaRatta was invited to lead a band consisting of Israeli,Middle Eastern,European,Asian and American Jazz Musicians in a concert inside the UN for an international audience. Rick named this band "Jazz for Peace" and has continued these concerts at a venue on the upper west side in NYC called Jazz on the Park every Sat. as well as numerous other performances at events in and outside of Manhattan including the West Coast and Europe.
Jazz for Peace's mission is to
help advance people to their highest potential through the understanding of Jazz as well as spreading peace through our "Jazz for Peace Concerts" worldwide - joining forces (or performing) with multi-cultural musicians to spread peace through the artform of Jazz and entering regions that are politically controversial. By the means of live concerts, video taping, on hands/ on- line teaching as well as supplying musical instruments to under- privileged children in under developed areas worldwide,Jazz for Peace will re-enforce what past history has proven - that the art form of Jazz has the ability to create a positive effect that unites people and may eventually start to transform the barriers and issues of different cultures and beliefs.
