About the event
A BENEFIT FOR UKRAINE
Pro Arte musicians come together to give a concert in benefit of those suffering in Ukraine. Multiple different groups of performers donate their services to perform a moving evening of music. This event is presented for a suggested donation of $50. All proceeds will be donated by Pro Arte to the Relief Fund for Ukrainian Musicians.
Through this relief fund, the Lisa Batiashvili Foundation will administer grants directly to Ukrainian musicians, many of whom are affiliated with Ukraine's top orchestras, ensembles and conservatories. The program will reach musicians who have escaped Ukraine's borders as well as those who remain in their war-ravaged homeland. Beneficiaries are identified through musician networks and personnel info from musical organizations in Ukraine.
Initiated by Ukrainian-American violist Alexander Vavilov in collaboration with the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS), the Lisa Batiashvili Foundation is collecting contributions in the U.S. to support humanitarian assistance for Ukrainian musicians and their families.
