Oswaldo Iraheta,
Encompass has invited Karolina Gossteva to speak. She escaped Kiev with her two children, ages 6 and 8, while her husband remains in Ukraine fighting against invading forces.

The families of Ukraine are struggling to endure the invasion of Russian forces. All ticket sales from this concert will be donated to Happy Childhood in Odessa.
Hosted in the beautiful Christ and St. Stephen's Church, the oldest church on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It is a beautiful venue for performances ranging from intimate solo recitals to chamber ensembles.
A port city on the Black Sea, Odessa is a home for the arts in Ukraine. A varied mix of nationalities, cuisines, and humor creates a culture of love and strength.
At Encompass, we believe in the power of music to uplift and enrich the human spirit. With your support, Encompass creates, develops, and produces adventurous new music theatre-opera by new composers and lyricists that explores our place in the universe.
