The UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council is a group of accomplished musicians and admirers of chamber music within the international community. Through performances by the Society, the passion and intimacy of the chamber music repertoire has the creative power to move audiences and help promote the universal values of the United Nations, such as understanding between civilizations, freedom of expression, and equality of rights.
Founded in January 2016 by Brenda Vongova, the UN Chamber Music Society is dedicated to promoting the UN goals at large – through the universal language of music.
“Initiatives such as this concert by the UN Chamber Music Society are critical. I commend the Society for contributing their talents. They are using music – the language of peace – to advance the cause of refugee protection, raise awareness and promote the universal values of the United Nations.”
