Dear Music Travelers,
Like millions of people in the world, we are devastated by the war in Ukraine. We condemn the violence, and our hearts and thoughts are with the Ukrainian people. We are also thinking of our Russian community, who are deeply impacted by the decision of a single man. We will continuously monitor the situation and are planning to partner with several initiatives to support Ukrainians directly impacted by this crisis.
Music has always been a bridge across cultures, bringing people closer together. It will no doubt continue to bring us together as a community across the globe, across ideologies, across borders. Some of Music Traveler’s wonderful ambassadors are extremely proactive in their help. If you are in Berlin, Germany, on the 15th of March, please support-Kirill Gerstein in his initiative fundraiser “ Solidarity concert for Ukraine “ or donate to UN Crisis Relief from wherever you are.
Kirill’s Berlin initiative is in collaboration with Alan Gilbert, Lisa Batiashvilli, Rolando Villazó, François Leleux, Max Raabe, Christoph Israel, Gijs Leenaars, Rundfunkchor Berlin, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin under Claudia Roth, The Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media of Germany.
Additionally, if you would like to host Ukrainian or Russian musicians fleeing their country, please contact Music Traveler. (Partner@musictraveler.com) We have built our platform to connect and support musicians and music enthusiasts across the globe, and we want to continue this mission in this very trying time.
The Music Traveler Team
