Event description: 

A journey through film and music with Hobart Earle, Music Director and Principal Conductor of the world-renowned Odesa Philharmonic Orchestra. Maestro Earle will pay homage to members of his orchestra—many of whom are currently displaced by the war in Ukraine or fighting the Russian invasion of their country—by presenting high-quality video recordings of their performances from 2014-2023, featuring various musical compositions by Ukrainian and international composers. His presentation will explore lesser-known moments in Ukrainian history, how performers adapt to life during wartime, and how music itself is transformed for the listener due to current events.
