Why this is important 

In 2021, Kharkiv became a member of UNESCO Creative City for Music. That’s why the musicians of Kharkiv Prime Orchestra went on a tour of European cities, which are also part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, to talk about the state of the creative industries in Kharkiv during the war, as well as to attract help from European countries.

Before each performance, the musicians showed a video about Kharkiv, in particular, about the terrible consequences of the invasion by the russian occupiers. The musicians performed the anthem of Ukraine and other Ukrainian songs in a modern arrangement.

The initiative was implemented with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ukrainian National Commission for UNESCO.
