Bi-communal Choir for Peace in Cyprus turns 20
NICOSIA, 22June 2017 - The Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Cyprus, Ms. Elizabeth Spehar, attended the 20th anniversary celebration of the Bi-communal Choir for Peace in Cyprus, whose members, from both Cypriot communities, share a vision of a re-unified and peaceful island, using the power of music to unite.
SRSG Spehar was inspired by the beautiful music of the choir, and also by its members' unwavering messages in support of peace in Cyprus. UNFICYP has supported the work of the choir since its very first performance was held at Ledra Palace Hotel in the buffer zone in October 1997; the choir has continued to rehearse and perform at the same venue throughout the last two decades.
Congratulations to the Bi-communal Choir for Peace in Cyprus on this important milestone!
