This Saturday night, BloomBars will join hundreds of musicians worldwide to celebrate Playing for Change Day!
The 1st annual Playing for Change Day – on September 17, 2011 – is a global day of action where musicians of all varieties perform on stages, cafés, city squares, and street corners worldwide and raise money to bring music into the lives of young people.
Donations from the event will support Playing for Change’s Ntonga School of Music in Gugulethu, South Africa and the good work of BloomBars to inspire the arts and artists within our own community.

About Playing for Change Day:
This year’s event carries the theme Power to the People, drawing its inspiration from the spirit of John Lennon’s activism, thanks to the gracious support of Playing For Change’s mission by Theatre Within and Yoko Ono. Proceeds raised will support the work of the Playing For Change Foundation and Theatre Within – to help build music schools, strengthen music and arts education, support teachers and performances, purchase instruments, and connect schools to promote cross-cultural learning and conflict resolution.
Playing for Change Day is a creative day of action that uses the universal power of music to create positive social change. Your donation or participation contributes to a positive vibration that connects and inspires us all.
Play a Song. Change the World.
About Playing for Change:
A decade ago a small group of documentary filmmakers set out with a dream to create a film rooted in the music of the streets. Not only has that dream been realized, it has blossomed into a global sensation called Playing For Change, a project including musicians of every level of renown, that has touched the lives of millions of people around the world.
The Playing for Change Foundation is dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. They are driven by the belief that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music. By providing children a safe place to learn, flourish and express themselves, PFCF helps provide a creative alternative to the struggles many of these children face daily.
