The Cathedral of the Incarnation will host a benefit concert for Ukraine on Friday, November 4th at 7:30pm. Sponsored by the Nassau Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, the evening will be an exciting performance of Ukrainian music for organ, choirs and handbells, celebrating peace. Musicians from throughout the area will participate on the newly-renovated cathedral organ.
The Cathedral’s Director of Music, Larry Tremsky, just returned from a trip to western Ukraine, and will speak about his experiences on the trip. “The resilience of the Ukrainian people in unbreakable,” he said. “I’ve never seen such strength and determination to prevail in their fight for freedom. It was a genuine privilege to be with them and witness their calm demeanor in the midst of the daily horrors they face. We’re delighted to host this concert, which will be the first big event featuring our refurbished Casavant Organ.”
The suggested donation for the concert is $20; all proceeds will go to World Central Kitchen, which has been instrumental in providing meals to refugees in Ukraine during the war. For further information, please see http://www.nassauago.org.
