Reserve your seats in this beautiful historic church for what will be a moving afternoon of instrumental music and song, featuring some words from Karolina Gossteva. This working mother escaped Kiev with her two young children, ages 6 and 8, while her husband chose to remain and fight in Ukraine.
The beautiful Christ and St. Stephen's Church has graciously donated the use of their beautiful venue for this peaceful afternoon. Experience one of the oldest churches on the Upper West Side: this wheelchair-accessible venue features gorgeous space for performances and reflection.
In association with Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, we at Encompass strive to support the women, children and families of Ukraine. This extraordinary afternoon is dedicated to the people of Ukraine, in recognition of their courage, resilience, and strength in seeking freedom and peace.
 
Join us in standing with the families of Ukraine.
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.
