5 Sep 2020 - On the UN International Day of Charity, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will perform a tribute concert to the homeless – in the spirit and call of strengthened global solidarity, focused on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable. The United Nations recognizes that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. Opening remarks will be delivered by Olivier Adam, the Executive Coordinator of UN Volunteers. The performance will be delivered in collaboration with Professors Carol Rodland and Professor Natasha Brofsky from the Juilliard School, together with the members of the UN Chamber Music Society, dedicated to promoting the United Nations’ goals and values at large - through the universal language of music.
