Tel Aviv's community choir Alei Gefen will present a free program of music by Tchaikovsky, Grosz, Zehavi and others at the Enav Cultural Center (71 Ibn Gvirol, Tel Aviv) on October 8. The concert is part of "Harmony for Humanity," an international series of music days from October 1-10 to commemorate US journalist Daniel Pearl, kidnapped and murdered by Islamic terrorists in Pakistan in 2002. That same year his family inaugurated the music days on October 10, what would have been his 39th birthday. Since then "Harmony for Humanity" has grown and spread. Last year there were some 400 concerts in 39 countries, almost double those of the previous year. Pearl was a classically trained violinist, an avid folk fiddler and mandolin player who made friends through music wherever he traveled. "Daniel Pearl Music Days uses the power of music to promote cross-cultural understanding and reaffirm our commitment to humanity," says the Pearl Foundation's Web site.
