For the 2022-2023 school year the Mandarin Music Makers will share a message

of positivity, hope and kindness each month with our 'Choose' Campaign.


For the Month of September and everyday we will...

CHOOSE PEACE!

International Day of Peace, September 21st

A Voice for Peace


For the past several years on September 21st (International Day of Peace), we have sung as a choir to represent the movement for change through music. You can see our past performances on our YouTube channel. If you want more information about AV4P, please visit their website. http://avoice4peace.org/


Let us all create Peace Day every day!


The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Please join us for our General Meeting on Wednesday, September 7th at 6 PM!
