UN Chamber Music Society Concert for Lebanon
16 Aug 2020 -  Sending solidarity and support to Lebanon and its people in the face of the unprecedented explosion, on 16 August 2020, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will present a virtual concert in support of Lebanon’s ongoing relief and recovery efforts. The explosion ripped through the city, flipping over cars, shattering glass and causing building infrastructures to crumble. The international community is heartbroken to see the devastation caused by the explosion, and our thoughts and prayers go out to all the citizens of Lebanon and all those who have also been affected.

The concert will feature performances by Lebanese international singer, Tania Kassis and her team, together with the extraordinary members of the UN Chamber Music Society. Opening remarks will be delivered by H.E. Ms. Amal Mudallalim, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Lebanon to the United Nations, as well as Melissa Fleming, UN Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications. All funds raised will be directed to the Lebanese Red Cross, to benefit the people of Lebanon.
