Refugee Orchestra Project Makes Successful UK Debut

September 4, 2019

“The richness, variety and depth of music that has come out of immigrant and refugee communities is immense. I hope our audiences see that refugees have come from many places throughout our history, and any of us could find ourselves in the position of desperately needing help.”
— The American Magazine

The Refugee Orchestra Project has just made its UK Debut under the leadership of its founder and artistic director Lidiya Yankovskaya. The Russian-American maestra made several important media appearances in London, including features on BBC Radio 3 In Tune, Newsday, The American Magazine, and Classical Music Magazine.

“‘In these divisive times, vocal support of refugees has become critical – and musicians are uniquely well-positioned to address this issue,’ explains Yankovskaya. ‘Our art form crosses linguistic and cultural boundaries, and so much of what we do is rooted in collaboration.’”
