Sharon Katz & The Peace Train live, in concert.
Wonderful things are happening because of Sharon Katz & The Peace Train’s upcoming performance, TRANSCENDING BARRIERS with Mexican and American children on July 21.  One of the children—a ten year old will be seeing her mother again. 

Here are the details of TRANSCENDING BARRIERS on July 21, 2018:

For several years, Sharon Katz & The Peace Train has been working with diverse groups on the West Coast of the USA to promote multicultural understanding, respect and peaceful, constructive action. In 2018, they  extended that work to Mexico.

Working with our partner in Tijuana: Promotora de las Bellas Artes, they have been training singers on both sides of the California/Mexico border. On July 21st singers & supporters from throughout California will converge in San Diego, and travel across the border to meet up with the Mexican singers. After a series of workshops and rehearsals, they will perform a Unity Concert on the Esplanada of the gorgeous performing arts center in Tijuana, Centro Cultural Tijuana.  

10 AM: Parade from the WorldBeat Cultural Center (2100 Park Blvd, San Diego, California, 619-230-1190) to the San Diego Trolley at City College Station and travel to the border crossing at San Ysidro. Those with passports will walk across the border; those without will cheer them on! 

12:00 Noon: Meet with singers and supporters from Promotora from the City of Tijuana who will escort us as we Sing & Parade for approximately 20 minutes to Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT).  

From 1 till 5 PM, there will be workshops and meals for the singers.
