The newly-formed Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra will be touring during Summer in Europe and the United States. The orchestra will be conducted by Canadian-Ukrainian conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson, and includes musicians who are now refugees and Ukrainian members of European orchestras. It was brought together by the Metropolitan Opera, New York, and the Polish National Opera.

As part of this, the Ukraine Ministry of Culture is granting a special exemption from fighting to male members of orchestras who are of military age.

Following an inaugural performance in Warsaw, Poland, the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra’s first stop will be in London for the Proms ahead of concerts in Amsterdam, Berlin, Edinburgh, Hamburg, Munich and Snape Maltings, before culminating with concerts in New York and Washington DC.
