The Edita and Ira Morris Hiroshima Foundation for Peace and Culture has decided to award its prize for 2020 to the Bi-Communal Choir for Peace in Cyprus. The Bi-communal Choir for Peace in Cyprus was established in May 1997, after an initiative of the Bi-communal Citizens’ Group for Peace in Cyprus. The members are citizens of the two communities, Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots, who share a common vision and believe in the unity of the two communities through music. Its two conductors are Lena Melanidou and Kursut Tilki. Lena Melanidou is also co-conductor of the Inter-Communal Children’s Choir with Imge Arabi, for children aged 7-11. The Prize amounting to 80.000 CHF will be awarded on 13 May 2020, within the framework of the Peace Forum organised by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri).
