On January 11th, 2015, Westchester Interfaith along with the MLK Institute, hosted an Interfaith concert at Congregation Kol Ami. Over 100 guests arrived and enjoyed music from every walk of life. From Gospel choirs to Buddhist drums, every imaginable faith was represented.
Songs were sang and music played in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Everyone came together to rejoice and to remind us all that we are all human. No matter what color you are, which religion you follow, your sexual orientation or which language you speak – we are all to live together in harmony as preached by Dr. King. The concert included ceremonial drums and chants, gospel choirs, Quran recitations, hymns and interfaith choirs.
Mayor Tom Roach opened the evening with a speech recognizing the efforts of Westchester and of the groups present, and thanking them for their constant efforts in maintaining peace and harmony within our communities through interfaith and intercultural dialogue. Following the concert, all the guests joined in the main room of Kol Ami to enjoy fruit and desserts while engaging in conversation about the evening’s performance.
