World Symphony for Peace follows songwriter, composer, and peace advocate Morris Hayes around the world on a quest to connect people through the universal language of music. The feature-length documentary seeks to explore using music as a means to bring about peace. It begs us to look at why we don’t employ powerful forms of art such as music to relate to each other and thus solve our differences.

Filming began in Shanghai, China – Spring of 2016 documenting Mr. Hayes on the first stop of his global journey visiting six continents in search of indigenous sounds and composing music with local musicians. The documentary culminates with this tapestry of sound being woven into a modern symphony. Mr. Hayes is taking the energy that is generated as he travels the globe and channeling it into his call to action which is for everyone in their daily lives to “choose harmony.”
