On 24 October 2020, the UN Chamber Music Society (UNCMS) – in partnership with VIRTUA CREATIVE – will launch “75 YEARS OF LOVE,” a virtual concert in celebration of the United Nations 75th Anniversary. The programme will be musically representative at the regional level, as repertoire from all five official regional groups of the United Nations will be featured. The songs chosen will be linked to the message of the UN’s 75th anniversary. The concert will feature World Classical Music and World Pop Music – and will be launched on the various UN platforms.

Opening remarks will be delivered by Fabrizio Hochschild, Special Adviser on Preparations for Seventy-Fifth United Nations Anniversary; Filippo Grandi, UNHCR High Commissioner; and Melissa Fleming, UN Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications. The concert will be launched on the Official YouTube Channel for the UN75, as well as other UN and UNHCR platforms.

The “75 YEARS OF LOVE” project will also celebrate the debut album launch of the UN Chamber Music Society’s first world music album recording, in support of UNHCR, and in celebration of the UN’s anniversary. All donations received will be directed to support the humanitarian work of the UNHCR, which has provided for seventy-years life-saving assistance and protection to refugees globally. The album is scheduled to be launched by UNHCR in December 2020.
