Kaufman Music Center is proud to co-present the Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival. Ticket proceeds and donations for Festival events will go to humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.
Started in 2020, the Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival is a platform for the performance and discussion of the complex and unique contributions of Ukrainian composers to contemporary music. Through three separate concert programs and academic discussion with scholars and musicians, the festival engages the intersection of new music, contemporary events and the culture of Ukraine.
The 2022 Festival will journey through the ancient Ukrainian landscape, mythologies of nature and centuries of agrarian life, to the modern city. From the forest to the fields to the urban jungle, explore Ukraine’s diverse landscapes as we contemplate the role of music in our planet's past, present and future.
