Human Rights Orchestra in Concert

Sala dei Giganti, Palazzo Liviano

Wednesday June, 8th 9.00 pm

Musicians for Human Rights will perform in Padova on Wednesday June, 8th at 9pm in Sala dei Giganti of Palazzo Liviano with prestigious soloist from the Human Rights Orchestra conducted by Alessio Allegrini, first horn of the Santa Cecilia National Orchestra.

The programme displays music by Olivier Messiaen, Felix Mendelssohn, Dmitri Shostakovich, Maurice Ravel, Johannes Brahms. Musicians from Conservatory of Padova will join Musicians for Human Rights for the execution of a sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven.

The concert ends a series of seminars on 'Music and Human Rights', organised by the Human Rights Centre of the University of Padova in collaboration with Musicians for Human Rights in the framework of the MA Human Rights and Multilevel Governance of the University of Padua.

Both music and human rights knowledge (le savoir des droits humains) share the same creative and empowering potential in a frame of living humanism and quality education aimed at developing a universal culture of human rights and responsibilities.
