The September Concert is a celebration of peace and humanity through music. The September Concert was born in 2002 as a small, local grassroots effort and has steadily evolved to be an event of global proportion. From Cap Haitïen to Ukraine and Tokyo, there are now over 200 September Concerts across the world. In keeping with its founding tenets and coinciding with National Welcoming Week 2013, this year the September Concert will feature the official launch of Austin’s Welcoming Cities Initiative. Austin is one of 18 municipalities across the United States which has joined the Welcoming America’s Welcoming Cities and Counties Initiative to create more immigrant-friendly environments that maximize opportunities for economic growth and cultural vitality, and position communities as globally competitive, 21st century leaders.
