Dag van de Vrede (International Day of Peace)

In 1981, the United Nations declared September 21 as the International Day of Peace with the aim of creating a worldwide day of ceasefire and non-violence.

The Day of Peace is an annual event organized by the Dutch Wind Ensemble in collaboration with TivoliVredenburg and the Refugee Foundation. The Dutch Wind Ensemble invites guest artists from various artistic disciplines who have recently, or some time ago, fled from war zones around the world. Together, we celebrate peace on this special evening filled with music that moves and unites.

Benoit de Gryse, Head of Programs & Policy at the Refugee Foundation, says, “Through the universal language of visual arts and music, together with the Dutch Wind Ensemble, we put people fleeing literally and figuratively in the spotlight. In doing so, we highlight the worrying current situation while also showcasing the courage and resilience with which displaced people do everything in their power to continue their lives despite the circumstances.”

Our concert for the International Day of Peace in 2023 was chosen as one of the top 5 best classical concerts at TivoliVredenburg that year.

The International Day of Peace is made possible by:
