Here is more info about the concert:

We invite everyone to take part in a charity concert broadcast live directly from the charming venue Scena za Szybą.

During this evening, the following artists from Ukraine will perform: Kyrylo Revkov, his wife Anna and Olga Danchenko, who fled the war to Poland. Here, they found temporary shelter and human kindness, thanks to which they can do what they know and love most - play for the audience. The concert will be especially dedicated to all the people who try to survive and fight beyond our eastern border. As an expression of this concern, together with the musicians we will ask you to make a donation to the Caritas Poland: https://caritas.pl/ukraina/

The concert program will include:
- songs by Ukrainian composers of the 20th and 21st century
- jazz arrangements of Ukrainian folk songs
- artists' own compositions

Anna Revkova - flute
Kyrylo Revkov - saxophone
Olga Danchenko - piano
Hanna Chazowa – lecture

The concert is organised in cooperation with the Katowice City of Gardens Cultural Institution and the JazzArt Festival, of which Kyrylo is this year's artist in residence.
