I am thrilled to share with you my presentation/home concert on peace. It can be viewed on YouTube at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZzeK2xMj5I Over the past few months, I have studied with the Institute for Economics and Peace as I work toward becoming a Peace Ambassador. I have learned so much about peace through this program, and I hope that I can successfully convey some of this knowledge to you in this presentation. Also, thank you to those of you who contributed your thoughts on songs that mean or bring peace. (I play a couple of them in this video!) This really added to my total exploration of peace from angles of sound, culture, and personal interpretation.

Reflective of the challenges facing the world today, Re-Imagine is a call for unity and imagination in order to rise above. The pandemic put a pause on many activities and has offered an opportunity for a more robust global effort to combat issues facing humanity – these include disease, the existential threat of climate change, economic disparity, and social injustice. Only by bringing out the very best in one another may the call be answered to ensure a harmonious existence for current and future generations. The song, based on Sarah’s piano line, inspirational lyrics, and full instrumentation, uplifts this message.
