The Rothko Chapel is using the power of music to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Peace - and to take a stand against recent events demonstrating hate. The Chapel is hosting a concert featuring Apollo Chamber Players, the award-winning Houston-based string quartet, for a performance.

International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution and provides a globally shared date for people to commit to joining together in spite of differences to build a culture of peace. This year’s theme is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.”

The concert will feature music inspired by peace, reconciliation and human rights, including both older and newly commissioned works by world-renowned composers.
