On March 22, SGI-Luxembourg joined representatives of the various religious communities in the City of Luxembourg for the 6th Interfaith Concert. The concert was held at Luxembourg City Synagogue and organized by Action Groupe Inter-Religions (AGIR) of which SGI-Luxembourg is a member.
The concert featured musical performances from different religious traditions including Catholic, Muslim, Protestant and Bahá’í. Jewish wedding songs were sung by Chief Rabbi of Luxembourg Alain Nacache as well as traditional songs by a choir of Bosnian women who are part of the Muslim community of Mamer. An interreligious song was also sung by all participants.
The SGI-Luxembourg women’s chorus, supported by some members of the SGI-Belgium women’s chorus, performed two songs. In the run-up to the concert, SGI-Luxembourg chorus members traveled to Belgium to practice with their fellow chorus members there.
