Thank you to everyone who supported our 2019 year's Vivaldi By Candlelight concert.  We look forward to seeing you again soon.

2020 Concert TBD

Join Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for our annual Vivaldi by Candlelight concert as we explore how women have a rich history of shaping the world of music! 

Why Vivaldi by Candlelight: 
Music diplomacy is an effective form of cultural diplomacy. As a universal language that breaks down language barriers and cultural differences, music can help a community understand world affairs. Music promotes cooperation, understanding, and mutual respect among people, communities, and nations thus contributing to a culture of peace and social cohesion.

For nearly 40 years, UCCD has hosted the Vivaldi by Candlelight concerts as our music diplomacy program - a program that has inspired more than 15,000 people in the community to the concept of citizen diplomacy - we all have the right and responsibility to help shape foreign relations one handshake at a time.  Or in this case, one piece of music at a time.
