MECHANICSBURG (July 28) – The Susquehanna Chorale, Linda L. Tedford, Conductor, will be featured performers at a benefit concert for the U.S. – Ukraine Foundation (USUF) on Sunday, August 14, at 3:00 PM. Profits from the event will be donated to the USUF. According to https://usukraine.org, the U.S. – Ukraine Foundation is a strategic “do tank” headquartered in Washington, D.C., with a permanent presence working on the ground in Ukraine since 1991.

The concert, Glory to Ukraine, will be held at the Sunoco Performance Theater at Whitaker Center, 222 Market St, Harrisburg, PA. The program will also include a number of well-known solo musicians from central Pennsylvania, including Peter Sirotin, principal violinist of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra.

Local musicians will be joined by the Russian cellist Igor Zubkovsky, a tenured member of the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra, and a Ukrainian cellist, Tetyana Pyatovolenko, who came to the United States for music study at Messiah University. She went on to receive her Master of Arts in Cello Performance from Penn State University.

Tickets for the benefit performance may be purchased online for $40; VIP concert tickets are available for $100. For more information about the benefit concert, visit https://ukrainebenefitconcert.com.
