Germany: UN Peace Day Concert in Düsseldorf

By Kasuha Canak UPF Germany

UPF Düsseldorf, supported by the Hyo Jeong Arts & Culture Department, commemorated the UN Peace Day (Sept. 21) by organizing a Peace Concert. Every year in the month of September, UPF Düsseldorf organizes events relating to peace. Usually they consist of lectures on the topic of peace but this time they’ve decided to celebrate it through art and music by inviting young talented musicians to move the hearts of the audience which included Ambassadors for Peace, friends and family.

UPF Düsseldorf & the Hyo Jeong Arts & Culture Department were grateful to the professional musicians Ryosuke Sato (tenor), Erika Kamura (piano) and Yurie Kamura (piano) for their stellar performance of classical and pop songs and Hirooki Hatori for exhibiting his artwork.

Here’s the program the musicians put together:

  • Schubert – Ave Maria
  • Pagliacci – Serenade
  • Mozart – aria no. 17 from the opera “Così fan tutte“
  • O sole mio
  • Tschaikowsky – Nutcracker Suite “March,” “Sugar Plum Fairy,“ and „Russian dancers (Trepak)“
  • Ryoko Moriyama – Nada Sousou
  • Masafumi Akikawa – Sen no kaze ni natte
  • Time to say goodbye
