They played music professionally before the war. After fighting in some of the fiercest battles of Russia’s war against Ukraine and recovering from injuries, they get back to playing.

Cultural Forces, the cultural arm of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, is bringing five musicians for a tour across the U.S. to thank the American people for their sustained support in helping Ukraine restore its territory and returning peace to Europe.

Performances will include renditions of a wide variety of music, from Ukrainian and world classical pieces to covers of popular hits, including by a master of the traditional Ukrainian string instrument, the bandura. There will be an opportunity for interaction between the audience and the artists.

On Make Music Day, musicians of all ages and skill levels share their love of music with communities around the world through free music performances and events on June 21.
Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique and is now celebrated on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries. Make Music Day made its American debut 19 years ago in New York. Since then, over 100 cities throughout the country have established city-wide celebrations providing free music listening and music-making opportunities for the community.

This is the second year Make Music Day will be recognized in Indianapolis as a city-wide event. For more information about Make Music Indy, including a complete list of performers and event times, please visit #makemusicindy2024
