Today is the officially recognized celebration of Human Rights worldwide. If you've never heard of Human Rights Day before, we will clue you in on what it is all about, as well as introduce you to an amazing network of musicians called Musicians For Human Rights.
According to the UN website, this special, yearly event "commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
In our modern world, this day is used as an opportunity for particular groups to celebrate achievements, as well as shed light on issues that are still, currently affecting them. The United Nations wants everyone to know that limitations on human rights are considered crimes against humanity.
"The mission of Musicians For Human Rights is to foster a culture of humanism through music in the United States and worldwide, in support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
This diverse network of musicians strives to bring the world together through the beauty of musical education, cooperation, and performance. In their words, "The mission of Musicians For Human Rights (MFHR) is to foster a culture of humanism through music in the United States and worldwide, in support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
With this mission in mind, MFHR developed the Human Rights Orchestra (HRO), which is made up of a variety of highly talented, classical musicians. These individuals have two goals in mind: Inspire others to take the literal stage, through incredible musical performances and cause others to take the metaphorical stage and demand social justice.
At Candid Brilliance Music, we understand the value of classical music training, and felt compelled to share this remarkable story, on a fitting day. Being involved in classical music lessons, event playing, and custom compositions, we recognize that MFHR is doing inspiring work, and want you to, too!
