Kyiv Virtuosi Symphony Orchestra

March 12  Tuesday at 7:30 pm

EJ THOMAS HALL

A tour for peace

Only touring the United States in March 2024 (and departing for a performance at Carnegie Hall immediately upon leaving Akron), Ukraine’s foremost symphony orchestra, featuring musicians from Ukraine, Russia and Israel, joins us for a concert dedicated to peace in our time. Grammy-nominated Russian-born, American conductor and cellist Dmitry Yablonksy, conductor laureate of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, will conduct a program featuring works by Mendelssohn and Beethoven along with Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk - and will also solo on a cello concerto by Israeli composer Baruch Berliner. Based in Ukraine's capital and now in residence in Italy, the ensemble unites talented musicians from throughout Ukraine, most of whom are competition winners. Joining the orchestra in Akron are piano soloist Alon Kariv and members of the MultiPiano Ensemble, all from Israel. The MultiPiano project was launched in 2011 at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, a joint institution of Tel Aviv University and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
