The Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine is coming to UGA on Jan. 23. It is one of the nation’s preeminent cultural institutions, and perhaps its most precise and grand. The orchestra, led by conductor Theodore Kuchar, will perform Dvořák’s New World Symphony as well as Brahm’s Tragic Overture. Stanislav Khristenko, described as a “poet of piano,” will accompany the ensemble for a performance of Grieg’s Piano Concerto as well. The orchestra, which gave its first concert in 1902, is currently touring the world, including a nearly sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. Not many tickets remain for the show, so purchase them now at pac.uga.edu or through the box office.
