We have an amazing community, with lots of terrific people who are working hard to help the innocent people of the Ukraine.
The March 27, 2022 “A Show of Caring – A Concert to Benefit Ukraine” at the Tarrytown Music Hall was inspiring and uplifting. Pianist Dr. Irena Portenko, Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York (recently seen on Saturday Night Live), pianist Svetlana Gorokhovich, countertenor Jeffrey Palmer, and Metropolitan Opera bass Stefan Szkafarowsky performed a compelling program that featured a variety of Ukrainian and other international music. One particularly moving segment was Szkafarowsky’s rendition of “I’ll Walk with God” which he dedicated to the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
A special shout out to the Tarrytown Music Hall -- specifically Bjorn Olsson, Executive Director – for donating the historic venue so that after expenses, all of the funds raised will be donated to the cause.
While the concert raised nearly $27,000 for charities providing humanitarian and medical aid to the people of the Ukraine, many in our area want to do much more to help. Here are some resources to guide you:
