Oneness-Dream Tour in Tuscany
Recently, the music group Oneness-Dream offered 31 acapella singing performances of Sri Chinmoy's music at spiritual locations throughout Tuscany, Italy.
The members of the group are students of Sri Chinmoy and come from several different countries. During the tour, they performed in churches and monasteries in Florence, Sienna and Pisa, and the surrounding Tuscany countryside. The music group is led by Prachar Stegemann with Adarsha Kelly the lead soloist.
The concerts were attended by members of the public and members of the local congregations. Those who attended the concert expressed their appreciation for the uplifting music.
During his lifetime, Sri Chinmoy composed many thousands of songs and also offered many Peace Concerts as an offering to seekers. Sri Chinmoy felt music could be a vehicle for bringing the heart to the fore and dissolving the barriers which can exist between people.
“Music will play a most important role in bringing about world oneness, for music embodies the Universal Heart, the Oneness-Heart. Music transcends the barriers of nations, nationalities and religions.”

- This wandering monk happened to meet the group in Sicily in 2016, 15 months later he was very happy to 'happen by chance' to come across another performance in northern Italy.
