Performance • Charity Concert for Ukraine
May 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for a charity concert organized by the Ukrainian Association of North Carolina and spearheaded by Dr. Maryna Kapustina (UNC School of Medicine). All charitable contributions received at the concert will go toward the purchase and delivery of medical equipment for frontline paramedics in Ukraine.
Scholar and pianist Dr. Taras Filenko will share an introduction to Ukrainian music with live performances at the piano and support from soprano singer Alina Cherkasova. The multimedia presentation will reveal Ukrainian national identity through a musical lens and will include works by composers from the 19th and 20th centuries, such as Bortnyansky, Revutsky, Lysenko, and many others as well as the arrangements of famous Ukrainian folk songs.
Alina Cherkasova is an Odesa-trained opera singer (soprano), vocal and piano teacher, and laureate of many international competitions (Italy, Spain, USA, Ukraine, Austria) with a repertoire that includes famous opera and Ukrainian songs.
