Established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, the International Day of Peace provides a “globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to building a culture of peace.”

Celebrate Peace Day at Oakland University with Mark Stone, associate professor of world music and percussion, as he shares a program of globally-inspired percussion pieces.

Professor Stone will perform original compositions featuring the newly-invented Array mbira, an American-made 120 key lamellaphone, as well as several traditional melodic African instruments, including the Ghanaian gyil, Ugandan akogo and South African kalimba.

There is free admission to this event.
