On Wednesday, September 11 — 12 years after the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington D.C. and in the skies over Pennsylvania — Millennium Park’s Jay Pritzker Pavilion will host a world music event called Shanti: 15th Annual Concert for Peace. Festivities begin at 6:30 a.m. (as in, early morning).

Featuring Chicago’s Fulcrum Point Ensemble, an array of international guests, the Chicago Children’s Choir and indie rockers Zamin, it also includes an interactive portion called “ring a gong for peace” by which concertgoers can participate via 52 gongs placed around the pavilion.

Admission is free.
