The Silk Road Concert
October 14, 2017 | 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Human Rights and Alliance of Civilisations Room, United Nations, Geneva
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and Fundación Onuart are inviting prestigious musicians from the Silk Road countries to perform at “The Silk Road Concert.” While offering a musical journey through the Silk Road – possibly the most mythical route of antiquity – the concert sets out to use music as an instrument to foster intercultural dialogue, understanding, and rapprochement between nations and cultures. The setting of the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room in the Palais des Nations in Geneva will provide the ideal backdrop to promote dialogue and peace around the world through music.
