On Sunday, 6 June 2021, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will present a virtual concert in celebration of UN Russian Language Day, which will celebrate the linguistic and cultural diversity of humanity, particularly through Russian language and music.   Russian Language Day is commemorated annually on June 6th, on the birthday of the great Russian poet A.S. Pushkin, within the framework of the program to support and develop multilingualism. The concert will open with remarks by H.E. Mr. Vassily A. Nebenzia, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations, and will feature performances by special guest artists of the Moscow Art Theatre: Vassiy, Anjelika & Anastasia Nemirovich-Danchenko. Language Days at the United Nations were introduced to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity and promote the equal use of the six official languages ​​across the Organization. These days are also an opportunity to sensitize the United Nations community to the history, culture and use of each of these languages.  Founded in 2016, the UNCMS is dedicated to promoting the UN goals at large - through the universal language of music.
