Music Saves the World is
a collectivity of musicians united for peace and harmony. Their concerts serve as a beacon of unity in this discordant era.
We harness transformative power of music and support music schools affected by wars and conflicts.
The events held on January 13th and March 24th, showcased a constellation of musicians, each radiating with brio and blaze.

The events were marked with a spirit of truly international unity. They were a celebration of art and music as a source of light and peace.
Vibrant and magnificent Yerevan, Armenia, steeped in history and humming with life, is the perfect venue for our upcoming marathon. A musical journey that transcends boundaries of styles, a luscious, funky, and groovy melange will take you to the realm of summer’s evening bliss.
The lineup reflects the diversity and richness of the musical landscape of the modern Caucasus.
This is a place for masterful musicians to celebrate but also to work together for a noble cause. The proceeds from the event will go towards the Arno Babajanian’s Musical School in the town of Masis, where students are in dire need of new musical instruments.
Participate to support the next generation of musicians!
Let peace begin with music!
