UNOG hosts more than 10 concerts and performances each year, ranging from classical recitals to traditional and folk presentations. Concerts are a valuable part of the Cultural Activities Programme at the Palais des Nations, often introducing audiences to a completely new musical style or tradition. More than any other kind of event, concerts provide the opportunity for guests to interact and absorb different cultures; the artists are physically present in the Palais, often dressed in their national costumes, and carrying their national instruments.
All concerts and performances are proposed by Permanent Missions and international organizations in the UN system. The organizer may not charge an entrance fee for any event taking place at the Palais des Nations. For information on access to events at the Palais des Nations, please call 022 917 4143.
