On Sunday, March 26th, at 3:00 pm, Paul Winter, with a host of musical friends, will present Ukraine Spring, a feast of music to honor and benefit the people of Ukraine at the extraordinary Church of the Assumption, 61 N. Cliff Street, Ansonia, Connecticut.

Tickets are a suggested donation of $35 (pay as much or little as you can).

The beneficiary of this concert will be World Central Kitchen Ukraine. Founded by Spanish chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen Ukraine began serving hot, nourishing meals within hours of the initial invasion and quickly grew their response by mobilizing teams of cooks in Ukraine, Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Spain, and Germany. With more people returning to Ukraine, World Central Kitchen Ukraine is focusing its efforts on providing hundreds of thousands of fresh meals and tens of thousands of food kits each day. World Central Kitchen Ukraine is reaching hundreds of cities, including areas under fire, recently liberated towns, and communities hosting refugees. All proceeds from this event will go to support World Central Kitchen Ukraine.

The vision for Ukraine Spring has come from a long-going dialogue between Paul Winter and renowned Ukrainian choral director Marika Kuzma. Joining will be Julian Kytasty, the reigning master of the national instrument of Ukraine, the bandura, in all its historical variants.

Joining also will be pianist Henrique Eisenmann, bassist Peter Slavov, multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Jeff Boratko, and vocalist Theresa Thomason.

“The Church of the Assumption is one of the undiscovered architectural and acoustic treasures of New England. It is absolutely in a class with many of the beautiful historic churches in Europe. The church is a magnificent, cathedralesque building constructed in the 19th century. It has gorgeous acoustics and an historic organ which will be played in some of the concert pieces by the church’s Organist and Music Director, Anthony Burke. We are grateful for our friend, Anthony Burke, for inviting us to present Ukraine Spring in this exquisite space.” - Paul Winter
