EAS, the European Association for Music in Schools, condemns the military aggression by Russian forces against Ukraine, a sovereign European state. We are saddened by the loss of life and human suffering inflicted by this unprovoked attack which has no place in the 21st century.
Our thoughts go out to all those affected by this action including fellow music educators, Ukrainian and Russian students, academics, artists and researchers in music education who are working together peacefully all over Europe. We stand by them in solidarity. Networking, research and collaboration across borders can only flourish in freedom and peace.
March 15th is the European Day of Music in Schools (EuDaMuS). Our title song “Together” conveys EAS’s attitude: Together we are strong. We dream of peace in every land! Please join us in EuDaMuS!
