Statement on Terrorist Attacks in the Middle East

The American Federation of Musicians of the US and Canada grieves over the terrorism and violence that has shaken the Middle East and joins the world in mourning the loss of all innocent lives. As music community representatives, we are especially saddened by and appalled at the murder of over 250 attendees who had gathered at the Tribe of Nova Music Festival in Israel to enjoy a musical celebration of peace and international unity, only to be met by barbarism beyond description. It is our greatest hope that justice and peace will prevail throughout the region, and that the global music community can help—as it so often does—both to comfort the bereaved and to inspire greater striving toward an end to terrorism and a better and more secure future for all.
