Kurdistan 24 Public Access television will cover the event live according to senior producer Berivan Yousifay, "we were looking for something that focused on various faith traditions coming together through music and think this is fantastic, we're excited to be attending."

Confirmed choirs who will perform from various faith traditions include the Adams Youth Choir with Ridwa Ullah and Faateha Syed who will open the program with a welcoming song followed by special greetings from Rabbi Gerald Serotta, Executive Director, Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington.  Performances will include the Washington Baha'i Chorale, The Olam Tikvah Chorale, Hindu faith tradition performers Arun Murkherjee and Misti Acharyya, with Mosaic Harmony closing out the program.  World Interfaith Harmony Week held annually, brings together thousands around the world.  The concert, open to all, is entitled “Mosaic Harmony & Friends – One Humankind in Music”, celebrating the ability of the language of music to bring people together and focus on our common humanity rather than the differences that set us apart.  A love offering will be collected and donated to UNICEF for Syrian Refugee Children.  Over their twenty-two year history, Mosaic Harmony has garnered praise and developed close ties from their varied performances at fundraisers, corporate events, educational institutions, churches, government agencies and private events in the Washington metropolitan area.

Says North, “producing a concert with friends for World Interfaith Harmony Week was a no brainer, clearly this is our wheelhouse, we live and believe in this mission.”  The choir has received many awards most notably in 1997, they were chosen by the Fairfax County Human Rights Commission to receive its prestigious Human Rights Award and in 1998, were the recipient of the President's Initiative on Race as a model program that encourages participation of people from different racial backgrounds.
