Ludwik van Beethoven

Symphony no. 9

One of the planned events accompanying the Baltic Opera Festival is a symphonic concert performed by the Ukrainian Freedom Orchester with the participation of BOF soloists under the baton of Keri-Lynn Wilson.

The orchestra was established in 2022. Its members are Ukrainian musicians, members of orchestras from Ukraine who had to flee from areas attacked by Russia, or Ukrainian members of bands from other European countries. The initiative by Keri-Lynn Wilson, who herself has Ukrainian roots, was supported by the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Grand Theater National Opera in Warsaw.

It is planned to perform the finale of the 9’th Symphony in Ukrainian. The most outstanding Polish soloists, the choir of the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic and musicians of the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra together with conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson, agreed to accept Tomasz Konieczny’s invitation not only to take part in the Baltic Opera Festival 2024, but also agreed to perform together as part of a special symphonic concert in Tricity space.

Final arrangements regarding the location of this concert are currently underway.

  • Izabela Matula – soprano
  • Małgorzata Walewska – mezzo-soprano
  • Piotr Buszewski – tenor
  • Tomasz Konieczny – bass-baritone
  • Keri-Lynn Wilson – conductor
  • Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra and Choir of the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic in Białystok
