‘Celebrating Peace through Justice’
75th anniversary of the International Court of Justice
The world is a safer and more prosperous place thanks to international cooperation. As music connects people, countries, generations and cultures, music is also one of the best ways to spread this message. This event presents musical journey called #UnitedMusic75. The aim of this challenge has been to show solidarity and highlight the convening power of music for a common cause: Peace through Justice.
On Sunday 18th April 2021 the Hymne des Nations was performed by the Residentie Orkest The Hague and harpist Lavinia Meijer live from the Museon. Composer Jaap Nico Hamburger incorporated the thematic material into the second movement to honour the spirit of the founding of the Court.
Create your personal interpretation of the Hymne des Nations* and be part of the longest and most diverse musical chain ever made. Let’s give PEACE through JUSTICE a rhythm that resonates all around the world, connecting nations, cultures and YOU!
