Members of the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will perform a benefit concert in Richmond on Saturday as part of the group's "Hope for Ukraine Tour."

Why it matters: Proceeds from the performance will go to support the Ukrainian people.

Richmond is the fourth stop on the orchestra's fall tour, which kicked off last week in Florida.

  • The performance includes Ukrainian folk songs, performed in costume, plus classical and contemporary works.

Worth noting: It's an all-female orchestra and chorus since the male members are back in Ukraine serving in the military.

Details: The concert is on Saturday at 3pm and is sponsored by and at Grace & Holy Trinity Church on VCU's campus (next to Altria). Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
