National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine & Post-Concert Conversation
Sun, 2/11 · 1:00 pm—3:00 pm · Matthews Theatre at McCarter Theatre Center
Founded in 1918 as Ukrainian State Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine is one of the country’s principal symphonies and the most-recorded orchestra in any former Soviet territory. Now, with their compatriots defending their homeland against a Russian invasion, the orchestra steps out of Russia’s shadow. For their return to McCarter Theatre the symphony brings some of Ukraine’s most talented and renowned musicians to showcase the country’s rich musical history.
Concert sponsors: PU Alumni Lydia Zaininger, George & Ellen Casey, Steve & Linda Gecha, The Olsen Foundation, the Ukrainian Institute of America and the Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination at Princeton University.
