Musical video project for Ukraine.

European musicians unite with their Ukrainian colleagues and jointly produce an impressive video with an appeal for donations at the end

For more than a year, Ukraine has been under attack from Russia.  To demonstrate their European solidarity and alleviate the great need of Ukrainians, orchestral musicians from all over Europe have joined forces with their Ukrainian colleagues.  They are producing an impressive video with a call for donations that will be shared virally on social media.  Generators and other relief supplies are to be provided for the Ukrainian population. The THW Foundation will assist with logistics and transport. Help us – donate too and share the project and the video!
