Concert for Ukraine

“When the cannons are heard, the muses are silent. When the cannons are silent, the muses are heard.” With our patron, Madame Argerich, we were trying to find answer to the burning question: Can music, culture, and sensitivity stop this cruel machine? We, musicians cannot stay silent when suffering is bred and each day brings new traumas, losses and horrors. With all our might and talent we "speak" and manifest "stop the war", "end the bloodshed". Along with Les Concerts de Villeneuve and Croix-Rouge suisse on the 8th of April we will hold a charity concert for the victims of the Russia-Ukrainie war. Come and say "no" to war with us
