London-based Ukrainian baritone Yuriy Yurchuk has organised a fundraising concert for the Ukraine, to take place on Sunday 16 October 2022 at Omnibus Theatre, Clapham Common, London. Yurchuk will be joined by Armenian soprano Anush Hovhannisyan and pianist Edward Batting for a programme of arias. Tickets are £25 and this will go to The Ukrainian Institute London which champions Ukrainian culture, going beyond the headlines to shape the conversation about Ukraine. 

Since the launch of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, The Ukrainian Institute London has been working tirelessly to give Ukraine a reliable voice in UK and world media, to respond to a constant stream of enquiries and to maintain our events programme, educational courses, cultural initiatives and support for displaced Ukrainians. The Ukrainian Institute London is an independent charity, and relies on donations to keep up their work

Yuriy Yurchuk has just finished performing the role of Giorgio Germont in Northern Ireland Opera's critically acclaimed new production of Verdi's La Traviata at the Grand Opera House in Belfast. He is also about to go to Belgium to perform in the lead role in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin at La Monnaie in Brussels. We caught Anush Hovhannisyan this summer as Tatyana in Eugene Onegin at Opera Holland Park [see my review]
