North American Conservatories to Present 'Unite for Ukraine' Concert [DONATE SATURDAY]

 

Eight of the top independent music conservatories and professional training programs from across the United States and Canada have come together to present a free virtual concert in honor of the people of Ukraine.

Hosted by The Violin Channel on Saturday, April 16 at 12 PM PT/3 PM ET, the online performance, entitled "Unite for Ukraine," will be introduced by violinist Midori.

The organizations involved are the Cleveland Institute of Music, Colburn School, Curtis Institute of Music, Manhattan School of Music, New England Conservatory, New World Symphony, Royal Conservatory of Music, and San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

The program includes performances by the New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation Klezmer Ensemble; the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Roots, Jazz and American Music (RJAM) program; and music from the Colburn School’s Ziering-Conlon Initiative for Recovered Voices, dedicated to reviving works by composers suppressed by the Nazi regime.

The concert also features works by composers Schubert, Bartók, Paul Taffanel, Miroslav Skoryk, and David Popper — performed by students of the Cleveland Institute of Music, Curtis Institute of Music, Manhattan School of Music, the New World Symphony, and The Royal Conservatory’s Glenn Gould School.
