The performance will attract people from the COMMON network including Indigenous, Bahai, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh and other communities.
COMMON is a recently formed multi-faith organisation bringing together people of all faiths and beliefs for cultural understanding, spiritual development in a social atmosphere. Numerous events are planned for the future such as ‘The Multi-faith forum’ on the 29th June in the Prince Philip Theatre, Faculty of ABP at the University of Melbourne, and the International Day of Peace Performance at Federation Square Melbourne on the 21st of September.
One of the performing groups at the ‘Healing’ Charity Concert is ‘Dya Singh World Music Group’ (http://www.dyasingh.com.au ) who played before the Queen at a Royal Command Performance at The Royal Albert Hall, London in 2004. The outstanding entertainment will also include the Aboriginal Healing Ceremony led by Uncle Reg Blow a charismatic Sudanese Catholic Choir and the spine-tingling sound of Parvyn Kaur Singh – whose CD will be released this year in the USA.
