Music Faculty join Celebration of Ukrainian Music supporting World Kitchen

On Nov. 29, at 7:30 p.m., at the Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship of Centre County, area musicians will perform “Concert for Ukraine: A Celebration of Ukrainian Music.”  All proceeds from the concert will go to World Central Kitchen – Ukraine Campaign that is serving 1 million meals a day in Ukraine.  Donations will be accepted at the door. 

Performers for the concert include Penn State music faculty members James Lyon, violin; Kim Cook, cello; Anthony Costa, clarinet; pianists Joanne Yang and Ian Duh: the Stonebridge Winds, an ensemble that includes music faculty members from Penn State, IUP, Bucknell and Susquehanna universities; and members of Penn State Choirs.   

The idea for the concert came from the performing musicians themselves, who are donating their time and skills.  Additionally, the Unitarian Fellowship is generously providing the hall free of charge so the concert can achieve the greatest benefit for the people of Ukraine.
