On Saturday Evening, 24 March 2018, at 7:00 pm, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council will present a Haiti Benefit Concert – at All Saints Episcopal Church (230 E 60th Street). 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. (https://fonkoze.org/)
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.
