Last week, the world was shocked by the tragic events unfolding in Ukraine. In the time since, the arts community has been scrambling to meaningfully respond. Orchestras of all sizes have added the Ukrainian anthem to their concert programs in solidarity, and people are coming together across the world to raise their voices in protest.

Symphony 21 is collaborating with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the Ukrainian Community Society of Ivan Franko to present a benefit concert.

On Friday, March 11th at 8:00pm, Vancouverites are invited to Andrew’s Wesley United Church to stand in solidarity and support with the Ukrainian community. The concert will also be livestreamed for those tuning in from a distance.

Program includes: Holst: Venus, Bringer of Peace from The Planets Reed: Plea for Peace Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man Liszt: Symphonic Poem No. 6 ‘Mazeppa Ukrani’ Barber: Adagio for Strings Lysenko: Hymn for Ukraine Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
