Two special shows this week to support Ukrainian refugees

This week, you have an opportunity to see a seven-piece string orchestra with piano and vocals perform in a beautiful candlelight setting, with proceeds benefiting a group most in need.

Candlelight, part of Fever Houston’s concert series, presents two benefit concerts in favor of refugees by collaborating with UNHCR, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, with the objective of benefiting Ukrainian citizens affected by the humanitarian crisis and the refugees who were forced to flee their country as a result of the war.

All proceeds from this Candlelight series will be allocated to help refugees affected by this conflict. While purchasing tickets, people will have the option to further donate if they wish to contribute more to the cause and thus participate in the work that is carried out by UNHCR. The option to donate without purchasing tickets to the concerts is also available for those who are unable to attend. Tickets and donation options are now available on the Fever website and app.

Tickets start at $45. 

The Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church will host the concert on September 18 with two shows starting at 6:30pm and 9:00pm. Included as part of the “Concert for Peace” initiative, the concept was created by a group of musicians from Ukraine and Eastern Europe, representing the Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, University of Houston Moores School of Music and Campbell Learning Center. The group, composed of strings with piano and vocals, will bring an all-Ukrainian program that includes unique sounds, from rarely heard chamber music by preeminent Ukrainian composers to folk and popular songs made famous by Ukrainian cinema, all taking place under the gentle glow of candlelight.
