Benefit Concert For Ukraine

As Ukraine heads into the winter and amid the escalation of the brutal war, Ukrainian nation is fighting the invaders with extraordinary courage and determination, and it needs our support more than ever at this decisive time. 

The beneficiary of the funds raised is  – an initiative launched by President Zelensky as a primary venue for collecting charitable donations in support of Ukraine.  

As a platform for supporting Ukrainian culture, this concert will be a world-class artistic event, marking a new pinnacle in the long-term creative collaboration between Joshua Bell and New Era Orchestra. 

The Ukrainian public has enjoyed at concerts in Kyiv and Odesa. Now people in the USA can enjoy their first joint performance in the United States.  In a noble gesture of support, Joshua Bell and the New Era Orchestra are donating their performance at this concert. 


Joshua Bell: In his career spanning four decades, Joshua Bell has performed for three U.S. Presidents and with every major orchestra in the world, to become the most celebrated American violinist of our time. Bell has recorded soundtracks for multiple films, including Academy Award winner The Red Violin. Bell plays on the famed 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin.

New Era Orchestra (NEO), the leading independent chamber orchestra in Ukraine, was founded in 2007 by its Artistic Director and Conductor, Maestro Tatiana Kalinichenko. The Orchestra has also performed with such global stars as the U.S.’s Sarah Chang and France’s Gautier Capuçon, and in 2018 became the first Ukrainian ensemble to perform in the official program of "Septembre Musical Montreux-Vevey”, which since 1946 has been one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. 

2022 would have been a year of the 15-th anniversary celebration for NEO, with many festive events planned long in advance.  Instead, 2022 became a year when NEO’s musicians have joined on the cultural front the heroic fight of Ukrainian nation for freedom and democracy. 

As President Zelensky said: When democracy wins in one country, it wins all over the world. When freedom is defended in one country, it is defended all over the world.” The United States is the largest ally of Ukraine in defending freedom and democracy, and the artistic collaboration between Joshua Bell and NEO exemplifies the historic ever-strengthening partnership between the United States and Ukraine at this vital moment in Ukraine’s resolute fight against Russia to maintain these universal values.
