This year the Greater Europe Peace Orchestra will hold three concerts, which will take place in Berlin, between 26th and 28th November.

The concert will be held in different places: on 26th the concert will be held at St Matthias and will concern the theme of music as a tool of communication and peace in Berlin; the second will be hosted on 27th at Jugendkulturzentrum PUMPE, and will be about refugees; finally, the third concert will be held on 28th at the Sankt Matthäuskirche and will regard the cooperation in Greater Europe through the contribution of civil society.

Since they are coming from different countries around the world, the 20 musicians playing in the orchestra represent their different cultures from Great Europe and the opportunity to cooperate. Through classical music, they will perform pieces composed by famous musicians such as the Russian Tchaikovsky, the German Brahms, the Czech Dvorak, the Austian Mozart, the Italian Vivaldi and Bach.
