In anticipation of the Pope Francis's trip to the United States September 22-27, WXXI-TV is pleased to present A Celebration of Peace Through Music, a special concert created by American conductor Sir Gilbert Levine that was taped last May in Washington, D.C. The concert, which will air on WXXI-TV Sunday, September 20 at 2 p.m., features the Kraków Philharmonic Choir, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and the Washington Choral Arts Society. Through music, a language that supersedes all cultural boundaries, Levine leads these world-class vocal and orchestral ensembles in a moving tribute to Pope John XXIII, Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis — three spiritual leaders recognized for their devotion to promoting understanding and peace around the world.
