Oct 19 @ 11:00 pm - 12:15 am

This service is also dedicated to Daniel Pearl World Music Days, taking place throughout the month of October.  The Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl lived a life that knew no geographical boundaries, with a spirit that knew no prejudice. A classically trained violinist and an avid mandolin and guitar player (whether it be classical, rock, bluegrass or jazz), Danny used his passion for music to form friendships across cultural divides; he connected musical groups the world over, through every community that he lived in.
