“Speaking to the soul” Kyiv Symphony Orchestra started a European tour
The Kyiv Symphony Orchestra has launched a European tour with a concert in Warsaw on April 21, 2022.
The orchestra’s players and their families have been based in Warsaw for the last two weeks after fleeing their hometown, with the men of the orchestra receiving a special exemption from the Ukrainian government to leave the country. The tour will currently contain a second Polish concert in Lodz, plus at least seven stops in Germany.
“Our concerts are truly a cultural mission,” said 22-year-old second violinist Oleksii Pshenychnikov. “In Ukraine, we say there is a ‘cultural front,’ meaning it is not escaping from the war, it is another aspect of the war.”
