The Members of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe would like to express their strong support to the people of Ukraine through their universal language of music and will be playing the Ukrainian National Anthem or appropriate Ukrainian music at their forthcoming concerts whenever possible.
In the context of the shocking events currently taking place in Ukraine, our concert in Eisenstadt on 11th March 2022 will help raise some funds for this country and here is a statement from the Esterházy Private Foundation: “The Esterházy Private Foundation would like to offer the opportunity to donate to Ukraine at the opening concert of the classic.Esterhazy concert series. The musicians of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, which will begin its engagement as the new resident orchestra at Esterházy Palace with this concert, belong to a wide variety of nationalities and are a prime example of how music is a language of peaceful coexistence and unites cultures through dialogue. Half of all proceeds from the concert will go to the organisations “Neighbours in Need” and “Doctors without Borders”. We also cordially invite you to support the fundraising campaign for Ukraine in order to set a common sign for peace. For this purpose, donation boxes will also be set up on site on the evening of the concert. If you prefer to donate online, please follow these links: https://nachbarinnot.orf.at or https://www.aerzte-ohne-grenzen.at.”
