Performing arts show at college to benefit Ukraine

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College students, alumni, faculty, and staff will come together on Saturday, April 1, to present ReUnited for Ukraine, a benefit evening of music, poetry, video and dance. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Mahaney Arts Center’s Robison Hall, and will also be live streamed. Though the performance is free and open to the public, resources about suggested charities will be provided.

ReUnited for Ukraine aims to share a message of the resilience of the Ukrainian nation and its people, despite the now year-long war. The evening will include a variety of Ukrainian arts and cultural offerings, including poetry readings by Middlebury College students Mariia Dzholos ’24 and Rostyk Yarovyk ’25, an inspiring speech by Middlebury Union High School exchange student Diana Herasim, videos from Middlebury College students and alumni, and lively Ukrainian folk dances.

Jessica Allen, Jeffrey Buettner, and members of the Middlebury College Choir and College Community Chorus will perform Ukrainian folk and sacred songs. Guest artists Teryn Kuzma and Stephan Zaets will play selections on the bandura, the traditional string instrument known as the national instrument of Ukraine.

ReUnited for Ukraine is organized by the Ukrainian students of Middlebury College, the Mahaney Arts Center, and the Department of Music. Read more online at go.middlebury.edu/UnitedForUkraine.
