Sound in the Land 2014 will explore music and the environment while discovering new Mennonite perspectives. A sequel to the highly successful Sound in the Lands 2009, which explored Mennonite music across borders and boundaries, and Sound in the Land 2004, which dealt with Mennonite musical diversities, Sound in the Land 2014 is both a festival with multiple concerts, performances, workshops, and an academic conference with papers and presentations which explore the new field of “ecomusicology” (music and the environment) from various Mennonite perspectives, locally and globally.

Bertha von Suttner, born in 1843, was in many ways ahead of her times. As an avid pacifist, this remarkable woman was the figurehead of a world-wide peace movement. She relentlessly fought nationalist fanaticism, aggressive militarism, anti-Semitism and recognized the dangers of hate breeding. As a writer and lecturer, she inspired her friend and benefactor Alfred Nobel to create a Peace Prize. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for her most famous novel “Lay Down your Arms”.
