Amsterdam Yunus Emre Institute, Eunic Netherlands and Cervantes Institute organized a celebration for the March 8 International Women's Day. This year’s theme for the event was the role of women in the music world, and during the concert that was organized for the event, the fact that the vocals and compositions of female musicians were being unheard for a while, as in all other disciplines, was brought up. Many different works were performed in the programme which aimed to create an awareness for the recognition of the skills and creativity of the female musicians in today's society and to contribute to popularizing the works of these artists. 

The musical works that are composed by various female artists from different locations in Europe were performed in the concert.

Gabriele Žemaitytė and Eglė Petrošiūtė from Latvia brightened up the concert with their voices and pianos.
