New York, NY (PRWEB) February 1, 2010
The Human Security Association (“HSA”) will present its first Power of Muze Concert on February 3, 2010 at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, in support of the United Nations (“UN”). The concert aims to raise awareness of human security issues and will kick-off further initiatives to promote human security globally.
HSA is a Tokyo and New York based non-profit organization founded in 2009 by Tomo Nomura, as the private sector’s non-profit correspondent to the efforts made to date by the United Nations to advance human security. HSA’s mission is, through performances and other music related activities, to: 1) raise awareness of the UN’s human security initiatives worldwide through media, celebrity and influencer advocacy; 2) raise funds from the philanthropic and private sectors to support initiatives which protect and empower people facing critical and pervasive threats such as poverty, hunger, forced migration, human trafficking, and/or armed conflict; and 3) encourage the private sector’s proactive involvement and utilization of all possible resources to support the UN’s human security initiatives.
Among these resources, HSA believes in the unifying power of muse and music to inspire and generate hope, and hence it has adopted name Power of Muze as its program moniker. HSA, through its Power of Muze initiative, intends to mobilize global citizens as well as the private sector to help alleviate suffering through a universal language, bringing music and culture to feed the spirit. Mr. Nomura states that “HSA recognizes the importance of mental health -- hope, dreams and dignity -- and intends to extend both comfort and support through music.” He continues that “establishing the HSA is an important step toward a private-public collaboration that will trigger momentum for global society to further advance human security all over the world.”
In this much anticipated concert, the HSA will convey its message through uplifting and substantive performances by world famous contemporary cellist Maya Beiser and renowned international opera singers and HSA Honorary Members Asako Tamura and Mari Moriya. The evening’s program also will include Goodwill Ambassador Marcus Samuelsson and award winning journalist and television personality Michael Okwu as Master of Ceremonies. Expected guests include Permanent Representatives and Ambassadors from UN Member States, high-ranking UN officials, government officials, celebrities, philanthropists, titans of industry, national/international media and other prominent individuals and influencers who support the notion of ensuring human security worldwide.
HSA intends to hold its next Power of Muze concert on June 9, 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.humansecurity.or.jp.
