About The Event
When Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison, South African musician and music therapist Sharon Katz joined with singer and educator Nonhlanhla Wanda to form a 500-voice multiracial youth choir. Railroading across the country aboard The Peace Train, they became a moving billboard for Mandela’s message of peaceful coexistence and the transition to a nonracial democracy.
Since the original ride of The Peace Train, Sharon has continued spreading a message of peace, social justice, and reconciliation around the world through performances, seminars, workshops, residencies, and cultural collaborations.
This event is free and open to the general public, but, due to limited space in our Sanctuary, requires a ticket.
