Founded in 1918 as Ukrainian State Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine is one of the country’s principal symphonies and the most-recorded orchestra in any former Soviet territory. Now, with their compatriots defending their homeland against a Russian invasion, the orchestra steps out of Russia’s shadow. For their return to McCarter Theatre the symphony brings some of Ukraine’s most talented and renowned musicians to showcase the country’s rich musical history.
