Strauss Don Juan
Bruch Violin Concerto no. 1
Lyatoshynsky Symphony No. 2
IMG Artists, in partnership with the leading concert venues in the UK, is thrilled to announce a major tour featuring the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine.
The UK 2023 tour will be the orchestra’s biggest UK tour to date, and the first time they have toured the UK in 22 years, after last playing here in May 2001.
The National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine has long been one of the most distinguished European orchestras and has achieved world-wide recognition through its many international tours, which include Australia, the US, Europe and Asia.
Their visit to the UK in Autumn 2023 is a particularly important cultural event, following the tragic invasion of Ukraine by Russia and ongoing war.
There has been tremendous support given to the people of Ukraine militarily, politically and culturally since the invasion began but, with hostilities expected to continue for some time, it is vital that we continue to support the rich, musical culture of Ukraine. We hope that classical music lovers up and down the UK will come to these highly significant concerts.
The orchestra will be conducted by their music director Volodymyr Sirenko and the soloists on the tour will be two of the most distinguished young Ukrainian musicians performing on the international stage today - the violinist Oleksii Semenenko and the pianist Antonii Baryshevskyi.
Another unique element of the UK 2023 tour is that, in addition to providing a UK-wide platform for the orchestra to perform, it is also fundraising to support the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine and the continuation of Ukraine’s rich musical culture during this conflict.
A Just Giving appeal has been set up by the tour promoters, IMG Artists, supported by all 18 concert venues on the tour.
All donations however small or large will be gratefully received. The Just Giving appeal will remain open until November 30th 2023, when all proceeds will be donated directly to the orchestra to support their work.
Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult 18+
