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. The society is dedicated to promote the UN goals at large, such as promoting values and understanding between civilizations, freedom of expression, equality of rights, through the universal language of music.
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 UN goals at large. Founded in January 2016 by Brenda Vongova, the group aims to promote and raise awareness of the transformational power and the great human capacity of chamber music.
“The creation of the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council symbolizes our belief in the power of the arts to bring people and nations together. I commend the ensemble for using the universal language of music to promote the goals of the United Nations and our shared values of mutual understanding and equal rights for all.”
