Announcement of the Haiti Benefit Concert by the UN Secretary-General’s Spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, to the international press.
On Saturday March 24th, the @UNchambermusic will present a #HAITI BENEFIT CONCERT. All proceeds will be directed to @Fonkoze, Haiti’s leading microfinance institution, which provides financial and development services to empower Haitians, primarily rural women. Through Fonkoze’s programs and services, there are currently over 200,000 Haitians who have a viable and sustainable way to lift their families out of poverty.
At the concert, the music programme will feature the world premiere of the chamber music arrangement of “Haiti Project: Symphony of Hope” specially arranged by Grammy winning composer/conductor Lucas Richman for the UN Chamber Music Society to be performed on this occasion. The “Symphony of Hope” project was originally produced by Grammy winning composer, Christopher Lennertz, and is a collaboration by 25 of today’s leading #Oscar, #Tony, #Grammy and #Emmy winning composers to benefit Haiti.
Opening remarks will be delivered by H.E. Ms. Inga Rhonda King, Chair of the Caucus of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Permanent Representatives to the United Nations
