UN Chamber Music Society Concert in Celebration of French Language Day & Month of la Francophonie
20 Mar 2021 -  On Saturday, 20 March 2021, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will present a virtual concert in partnership with the Permanent Mission of France to the United Nations and the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF). The concert will take place on French Language Day, and will also honor the month of Francophonie – by celebrating the linguistic and cultural diversity of humanity, particularly through French language and music.
Language Days at the United Nations were introduced to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity and promote the equal use of the six official languages across the Organization. These days are also an opportunity to sensitize the United Nations community to the history, culture and use of each of these languages. Founded in 2016, the UNCMS is dedicated to promoting the UN goals at large - through the universal language of music.
Opening remarks will be delivered by H.E. Mr. Nicolas de Rivière, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations, and H.E. Mr. Léon Kacou Adom
Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Côte d'Ivoire to the United Nations, Chairman of the Group of Francophone Ambassadors.
