“Concert for Ukraine” is an initiative of the Nizio Foundation and Nizio Gallery and a group of their partners. It is an expression of solidarity with Ukraine and support for the activities of the Foundation “Nasz Wybór” (Our Choice), which since the year 2014 has been running the Ukrainian Home – a place where foreigners, especially Ukrainian citizens, can feel safe and sound.

We want to effectively help people in need who are the recipients of the support provided by the Ukrainian Home. In collaboration with Ukrainian Home, the Nizio Foundation and its partners are working to create a special outreach initiative for refugee women and their children fleeing war.

The guests at the concert left monetary donations collected by volunteers from the “Nasz Wybór” foundation in a special registered can.

During the event there was a premiere performance of Patrycja Betley’s composition-anthem “Waltz for Ukraine”. The vocalist Karolina Cicha also appeared in the Nizio Gallery; she sang a symbolic Ukrainian folk song. The core of the “Concert for Ukraine” musical program was prepared by outstanding musicians who are known for our audience from the “Wnętrza Muzyki” (The Insides of Music) concert series organized at the Nizio Gallery. Classical compositions were played by pianists from the Ravel Piano Duo, i.e. Agnieszka Kozło and Katarzyna Ewa Sokołowska, and pianists from Zarębski Piano Duo, i.e. Piotr Różański and Grzegorz Mania. Some jazz pieces were also performed that evening, thanks to the courtesy of the vocalist Agnieszka Wilczyńska and the pianist Kasia Pietrzko.

All musicians waived their royalties, and the organizers and partners worked and provided the necessary equipment pro bono. Thank you!
