About the event
Book your TICKETS via Eventbrite:
For ONE NIGHT ONLY, British-Ukrainian Aid and The Royal Scots invite you to “Muse Ukraine: Indomitable Spirit'' which presents an all-Ukrainian music programme, unveiling the long-lost gems of the musical and cultural heritage of Ukraine. Rising above the multitude of difficult historic times, past and present, this music honours the indomitable spirit of those who stand for the basis of humanity - a life in freedom and peace.
“Muse Ukraine: Indomitable Spirit” is a project of an ongoing collaboration between two artists, Ukrainian-American violinist Myroslava Khomik and Finnish-British pianist Julia Wallin, who believe that the power of music can serve as the best communicative tool in most challenging times. They dedicate their unique programs to a message that serves a deeper purpose of cultural diplomacy, education, conversation and understanding of common values.
This concert is a third edition of Myroslava Khomik’s “Muse Ukraine” initiative uniting colleagues and friends worldwide in the common endeavor to stand up for these important values and speak up through their unique artistic voices. The series saw her performing across Europe and the US in 2022-2023 since the start of the war. It is part of her “Beyond the Muse” program presenting meaningful and timely subjects through creative means and educational elements.
Julia and Myroslava partner their efforts with humanitarian and diplomatic organisations, such as British Ukrainian Aid, Reform Club, Finnish Embassy, and The Royal Scots among others, to raise funds and awareness of the ever-rising need for attention to this important part of spiritual unity among nations.
All proceeds of the concert will be donated to British-Ukrainian Aid to support relief and rescue operations in Ukraine, and the ticket price of £25 will contribute to the purchase of:
A medical First Aid Kit (£100)
A Portable Generator (£300-1500)
An Ambulance (£8000)
British-Ukrainian Aid supports people suffering from the war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, including the injured and wounded, orphaned children, the elderly, internally displaced persons, refugees and families who have lost their main earners.
