Premiere

“European Muses Are Not Silent: music symposium, workshop, residency” is initiated by ZAMUS: The Early Music Center (Cologne, Germany) and the Myroslav Skoryk Lviv National Philharmonic as a result of the first creative collaboration that took place in August this year in Lviv (Ukraine), XIX International Lviv Early Music Festival.

The cooperation will be held as part of the large-scale, long-term art project named “Ukraine-2022. Muses Are Not Silent” launched at the end of March this year to support Ukrainian musicians who stay in Ukraine and continue their professional activities during full-scale Russian military aggression.

 

The project is funded by “The Music fund Ukraine”.
“The Music fund Ukraine” is a project of the Goethe-Institut as part of a comprehensive package of measures for which the Federal Foreign Office provides funds from the supplementary budget 2022 to mitigate the consequences of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine and which is additionally supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, in cooperation with Culture Connects e.V.”
