In an Interview with UN Information Office, Feruza Abdurakhimova, a professor, the art director and the conductor of Uzbekistan State Chamber Orchestra of National Instruments “Sogdiana” remembers the EcoWeek as her “UN Moment” in 2012.
- Cooperation between “Sogdiana” and the UN Information Office were first established in 2011 and continued in 2012. The biggest “UN Moment” for us was the Gala, which was devoted to the International Ecoweek organized by the UNDP. As part of this campaign, we joined the UN Information Office and put together a concert program including songs of different genres and styles. The programme was a huge success. This year we would like to continue our collaboration within a bigger Gala on the occasion of the Universal Children’s day.
