“It exudes peace in cities all around the globe including Hong Kong and I wanted include the village Lancaster and I wanted to include them in this musical sculpture which is truly a tribute to the season,” Village of Lancaster Events Coordinator Dawn Gaczewski said.
It's part of an international movement started in New York City by the composer of the song Phil Klein. He wrote four different melodies that all fit together into what they call a ‘Sound Sculpture’.
You can pick one of those for songs, then they are designed to be played all at once.
“You can go to www.lancaster.unsilentnight.com and download the music. If you are unable to do that you can come with a CD boom box and we can give you a free CD,” Gaczewski said.
They've been doing this in the Big Apple and across the world for more than 20 years and thousands of people are involved. In Lancaster, they hope to get a good showing.
“You can walk around the village with us with this music filling the air with the ora of peace,” Gaczewski said.
Gaczewski said it is not only an uplifting and fun experience but the money raised goes to a good cause.
“We'll have food venders and tents and so forth and if you visit the Hospice tent and buy bear or ornament all the money goes to hospice care,” Gaczewski said.
