The Swiss Charity Concert is an annual charity concert benefitting Save the Children, the world’s leading independent organization for children, and is supported by A.T. Kearney. In 2011, the concert series was launched by management consultant, conductor and pianist Victor Dijon de Monteton. The Swiss Charity Award, which is awarded in this context, promotes young, talented musicians and gives them the opportunity to perform at the concert.
In 2019, the concert was held in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Save the Children at an exclusive gala dinner in the Tonhalle Maag in Zurich.
All proceeds of the concert go to the non-governmental organization Save the Children. To celebrate its 100th anniversary, the Swiss Charity Concert was part of a gala dinner on August 24, 2019. In addition to performances by the youth orchestra Camerata Jovem do Rio de Janeiro, we were pleased about the appearance of Veronica Fusaro, who presented her new single as a Secret Act.
The evening was hosted by presenter and comedian Stéphanie Berger.

By attending the concert, you support the world’s leading independent organization for children, Save the Children, which is committed to helping disadvantaged children in crisis and conflict regions around the world.
Poverty, war and violence are still the main reasons that 57 million children in primary and 69 million secondary school age children worldwide do not go to school or drop out early.
Save the Children has set itself the goal of giving these children and young people a future and ensuring full access to education and alphabetization for all children and adolescents worldwide. In the countries and territories concerned, they equip classrooms, provide teaching materials and train teachers. In addition, Save the Children is also actively engaged at the political level for comprehensive measures and sustainable solutions.
