DAMS music students promote “peace”

In honor of International Day of Peace on September 21, middle school teachers James Skaleski and Sussanah Sasman took a photo of their 7th and 8th grade general music students, in the shape of a large peace symbol.

According to Skaleski, “Students have been researching music used to promote peace or to highlight social ills.” Notable examples included Edward Starr’s “War”, Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World”, John Lennon’s “Imagine”, and the Jimi Hendrix’s Woodstock rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
