Musical Salon spotlights music of Ukraine on May 12

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center will host a Musical Salon spotlighting the music of Ukraine. The salon will feature music “by composers you may never have heard of, but the music will go straight to your heart,” organizers say.

Hosted by BMC faculty member Moby Pearson, the event is set for Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m.

Whether folk or classical, Ukrainian music is rich with poignance and jubilation. The folk music features multiple native instruments and colorful dancing. “The national hymn and anthem speak to the very crisis all Ukrainians are enduring in this horrific war,” states a news release.

The public is invited to attend to learn more of the culture, to hear and see all these elements, and sample some of the native cuisine.

The suggested donation is $25, with all proceeds going to the World Central Kitchen. To RSVP, call the BMC at 802-257-4523.
