Multimedia Piano Concert Celebrates Dr. King's Vision of a "Cosmic Melody That is Far Superior to the Discords of War"

Pianist Sarah Cahill presents "A Sweeter Music," a peace-themed benefit concert for American Friends Service Committee featuring works she commissioned by living composers, including Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, Meredith Monk, Jerome Kitzke, Michael Byron, Kyle Gann, Mamoru Fujieda, and Larry Polansky. Her title comes from Martin Luther King Jr.'s Nobel Peace Prize speech: "We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody, far superior to the discords of war." Video artist John Sanborn will show an accompanying video created for the music.

AFSC's Michael McConnell from Chicago, originator of the Eyes Wide Open ( public memorial to the human cost of war shown throughout the country will open with remarks about the AFSC peace work in a time of continuing war.
