UKRAINIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM CELLO PROJECT
ANNA STARUSHKEVYCH comes from Lviv in Ukraine and lives and works in the UK. She came and sang for us in 2013. She is passionate about her country. She says 'Ukrainians cannot and will not give up their freedom and their country. There is no way back, we have paid too dear a price already to stop now. If anyone could donate to the British-Ukrainian Aid Charity, this would be very helpful. https://british-ukrainianaid.org/
Anna is giving recitals around the UK to raise funds for Ukraine.
The National Opera of Ukraine accompanied by an orchestra of mainly young players is nearing the end of a long exhausting tour of Britain and Ireland. After 8th May some will return to Ukraine, others to various other European countries and some have no home to go back to. Many would like to stay in the UK because of the opportunities for musicians here.Some would like to study at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) in London. Several have already been offered places by the Academy. However, it costs about £40,000 a year for an international student to live in London and pay tuition fees. THe RAM has opened an appeal to raise funds to offset the costs for Ukrainian students and have set up a web page for giving: ram.ac.uk/response-fund If you feel you can contribute to the fund and help make possible an opportunity for young Ukrainian musicians to study in Britain, then please do so. The fund is a very focussed and practical way of supporting young talented Ukrainian musicians.

Upcoming Concerts All Concerts
The CONCERTS IN THE WEST series of MINI-TOURS offers a broad spectrum of Classical chamber music.
Concerts in the West was launched in 2006 and as with many organisations it has grown in the work that it undertakes and has many plans for the future, particularly in the area of education. We feel that there is an audience for Classical music of all types, but it has to be nurtured early, even if it takes some years to bring the two together.
Concerts in the West aims to bring talented young musicians to small venues in the West Country in areas that may not have easy access to music of this quality.
Short intensive tours, in Devon, Dorset and Somerset, are arranged for the musicians over a few days, when they have the opportunity to work on new repertoire, or to embed works more fully for upcoming recordings and major concerts elsewhere.
The enthusiasm and skill of these young people is breathtaking and has come about through many years of study (at least to postgraduate level), dedication and hard work. We feel very priviledged to hear them in such intimate settings.
The music played at the concerts is enormously varied and gives local audiences a wonderful opportunity to hear both familiar and unusual works for voice and instrument in many combinations.
