World Peace Orchestra

Founded in New York in 2013, the World Peace Orchestra is a unique nonprofit organization that encourages the growth of budding musical talent in youth from around the world. WPO celebrates the unity and diversity of global culture through their annual concert featuring over 134 young musicians from 50 countries playing both ethnic and classical instruments. As the only truly global youth orchestra, their mission is to promote peace and understanding through the unifying power of music. They strive to cultivate a new, compassionate generation of leaders who understand that borders, oceans, languages, and cultures cannot break the fundamental bonds of humanity. By exposing underprivileged youth to musical education and opportunities, WPO seeks to inspire hope, open up new horizons, and create a generation fluent in the universal language of music.
This is very inspiring!
