Good afternoon,

Welcome to the first day of the World Humanitarian Summit! We hope your day is filled with inspiring discussions, positive connections and wonderful experiences.

In the evening, we would like to welcome everyone to enjoy the classical sounds of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra.

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra will perform at the LKCC auditorium.  Doors open at 6:00 pm. Please note that ticketed participants are to enter first and then available space will be open to everyone on a first-come-first-served basis.

The opening remarks will be made by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and he will be introduced by the Under-Secretary-General of OCHA, Stephen O’Brien.

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra will perform two pieces during the programme:

 

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) Symphony No. 40 in G Minor (KV 550);
  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) Symphony No. 5 in C Minor (Op. 67).

 

The Orchestra was recently designated as the United Nations Global Advocate for Cultural Understanding. It was started in 1999 by Maestro Daniel Barenboim, a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and the late Edward Said.

In February 2016 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, “The work of the Orchestra is testimony to the power of music to break down barriers and to build bridges between communities. I am delighted that the Orchestra has committed to help us in our work towards creating a more peaceful, inclusive and united world.”

Please arrive early to ensure you have obtain a seat. We anticipate a full house.
