The VSO Presents A Tribute to Ukraine a concert celebrating Ukrainian music and artistry. Maestro Boris Brott was originally scheduled to conduct the concert, but tragically died on April 5, 2022.
Following the previously stated artistic direction of Maestro Brott, the VSO will continue its presentation of A Tribute to Ukraine, both in support of the people of Ukraine and in memory of Maestro Brott, a Ukrainian-Canadian himself. Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.
The VSO will share the details on the alternate conductor for the concert as soon as they are available.
If you are unable to attend the concert but still would like to support the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal with a donation, please do so directly through the Red Cross.
