Join us for a spectacular night of authentic folk music and dance from Ukraine performed by Chicago-based artists, musicians, dancers, and children's choirs to support humanitarian aid for displaced Ukrainians. Come for a night of creative inspiration drawn from the rich arts heritage of this beautiful and unique country. Performers include: Chicago Cossacks, The Maxwell Street Klezmer Band, Mazurdance Dance School, The Children's Ukrainian Vocal Ensemble “Oberig," Campanella Children's Choir, and poet Sofia Fraser.

Ticket proceeds will go to vetted charities providing direct support, medical services, and food to Ukrainians under siege and in exile including World Central Kitchen, United Help Ukraine, and Ukraine TrustChain.
