We are honoured to welcome the newly formed orchestra featuring some of Ukraine's best musicians.

Brought together by New York's Metropolitan Opera and the Polish National Opera, and led by conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson, the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra is a brand new orchestra including recently refugeed Ukrainian musicians, Ukrainian members of European orchestras, and some of the top musicians of Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Odesa, and elsewhere in Ukraine. The Ukraine Ministry of Culture is granting a special exemption to military-age, male members of orchestras inside the country, enabling them to participate in a remarkable demonstration of the power of art over adversity.
