To celebrate 75 years of the UNITED NATIONS and its International Court of Justice we invite you to join the United Music 75 challenge.
We want as many musicians, representing as many nations as possible to participate in this challenge, and hope this will lead to a musical chain of submissions representing all nations by April 2022.
October 24th 2020 musical variations were presented to surprise the UN on its 75th birthday. April 2021, when the International Court of Justice turned 75, a musical chain was shared. Throughout 2022 this musical challenge continues.
* The hymn was written for the inauguration of the Peace Palace in 1913 by Jewish-Dutch composer Charles Grelinger. However, the original piece was never performed, nor did he live to hear it! So now, with your contributions, it will finally echo in the halls it was composed for.
The original piece was adapted for carillon by carillonneur Heleen van der Weel and sent to all corners of the world by the carillon foundation The Hague, so that all carillonneurs would play it as part of the ‘War Memorial and Peace Carillons’.
