Symphony of Diversity is nationally recognized orchestral concert series that celebrates, illuminates and commemorates a history of human rights encompassing both triumphs and tragedies. It is a powerful anti-hate initiative and a non-partisan platform that reflects through music a world that is already a symphony of human diversity. The first iteration took place in Charlotte, NC in April 2017, with the sixth and most recent concert presented in April 2021 in Ames, IA. Over the years the concerts have generated unprecedented media interest and publicity for the activities of a university orchestra, for the artistic as much as the social merits of the concerts. 

Below is a media gallery of different articles and videos on Symphony of Diversity, providing some idea of the tremendous scope  – and success – of these performances.
