Jewish, Christian, and Muslim peace songs will be featured at the Seton Hall University and MidAtlantic Opera’s “A Prayer for Peace” concert on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 8 p.m. in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall. One third of the proceeds will be donated to the United Nations Human Rights Council for refugee relief.
