Peace On Earth - Cherry Blossom Festival

PEACE ON EARTH

Shofuso Japanese House & Garden
Lansdowne Drive & Horticultural Drive,

Philadelphia, PA 19131 (Fairmount Park)

 

FREE ADMISSION

 

This concert at the Cherry Blossom Festival at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden will present a performance of John Coltrane's - under-recognized classic, Peace On Earth. This song was written for and premiered during Coltrane's concert tour of Japan in 1966. As a young man, John Coltrane was a member of the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Hawaii soon after World War II. This song and his visit to the Nagasaki Peace Park, which commemorates the atomic bombing of the city on August 9, 1945 during World War II, illuminate Trane's desire to seek and inspire a greater peace and understanding among all human beings.

 

The Peace On Earth ensemble consists of a cross-section of players including elder Jazz veterans who actually witnessed John Coltrane in perfomance, to young highly skilled young players raised in the era of Hiphop. The group imcludes bandleaders, educators, composers and informal historians. Each musician brings a startling depth of experience and commitment to their instrument and to the music. In this special concert, this brilliant ensemble will transform the original composition into a suite of various movements, sonic textures and moods offering musical features for solos, duets, trios and full ensemble performance segments, all culminating in a triumphant celebration of life and the newness of Spring.
