Last weekend [March 11-13] at Jones Hall the Houston Symphony showed solidarity with the courageous heroic people of Ukraine just before the concert program began.
My wife and I were blessed to be in attendance at this stirring emotional moment in Jones Hall in Houston. I actually got tears in my eyes.
Houston Symphony Orchestra
It started with a member of the orchestra, Sasha Potiomkin, Bass Clarinet, who gave an emotional talk about his being born and living in for 17 years, Ukraine [the Soviet Union back then]. Then with the whole audience standing out of their seats, the Houston Symphony Orchestra gave a beautiful playing of the Ukraine National Anthem-“Ukraine has not yet perished” Glory to Ukraine!
