Enjoy a free virtual benefit concert to honor and support the people of Ukraine. Featuring performances by eight of the United States and Canada’s top music conservatories and professional training programs, the virtual concert will offer viewers the opportunity to make donations to support organizations providing humanitarian aid, supplies and transportation, and medical services to the people of Ukraine.

Filmed across North America in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and Boston, the concert is dedicated to the people of Ukraine. 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 Schubert, Bartók, Paul Taffanel, Miroslav Skoryk, and David Popper 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.
