Peace Drums Project, an innovative music undertaking to create harmony and promote peace among Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth in Israel, hosted it’s 2nd annual Peace Drums Concert Event on Sunday, June 8, 2014, to help fund the next delivery of steel drums to Israel. The free event featured live Steel Drums Bands, delicious Israeli food, raffle prizes, and more!The Peace Drums Project began after local religious leaders met to brainstorm ways to promote peace in the Middle East. Upon learning that founder Harvey Price, who had already formed three successful youth steel bands in Israel, wished to form a Jewish, Christian and Muslim steel band made up of middle school-aged children, they embraced the idea.
