Barely integrated into the Orchester de Paris, five Ukrainian musicians were able to participate in concerts conducted in particular by Jaap van Zweden, Paavo Järvi or Esa-Pekka Salonen.
6 months later, the Philharmonie de Paris is therefore offering a charity evening on Wednesday, October 5 to support Ukrainian artists.
