Friday, April 15 • 7:30pm
@ Peabody Conservatory

Denis Savelyev, Flute, from Ukraine
Evanghelina Ciobanu, Cello, from Moldova
Nikolai Klotchkov, Saxophone, from Russia

Peabody Conservatory graduate students from Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine have organized a benefit concert to raise funds to support humanitarian relief efforts for the people of Ukraine. Moldovan cellist Evanghelina Ciobanu, Russian saxophonist Nikolai Klotchkov, Tartar pianist Ramilya Saubanova, and Ukrainian flutist Denis Savelyev put together an evening of music by Ukrainian, Tartar, and Georgian composers — Reinhold Glière, Zhanna Kolodub, Boris Lyatoshisnky, Myroslav Skoryk, Otar Taktakishvili, and Rustem Yakhin — and invite concertgoers to donate to the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health (using the code “Ukrainian assistance”), which is galvanizing frontline NGOs and agencies in European countries receiving refugees from the Ukrainian conflict.

This performance is free and open to the public. Seating is general admission. Please review current COVID safety guidelines under JHU policy.
