"Tribute to Heroes" Benefit
April 28, 2022 | 19:00 | Lobkowicz Palace
William and Alexandra Lobkowicz cordially invite you to “Tribute to Heroes,” a benefit event in support of Ukraine taking place at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle on April 28, 2022, at 19:00.
For the benefit concert, the Czech Sinfonietta, consisting of Czech and Ukrainian musicians, will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony no. 3 in E-flat major, op. 55 (Eroica), under the direction of Radek Baborák. The evening’s program will also include the opening of two authors’ photography exhibitions, which depict both the tragedy of the war in Ukraine as well as the hopeful spirit of its people. One of the projects, entitled "Queen of Ukraine" and curated by Bet Orten, features photographs of women in Ukraine during the first days of the war. These portraits were taken by Ukrainian photographers with whom Orten connected through the NFT community. The exhibition at the Lobkowicz Palace will include a silent auction of the background the women stand in front of, printed on large screens.
All proceeds will go to the humanitarian organization Magna, which has been operating in Ukraine since 2019 and is registered there for the provision of medical care. Magna supplies hospitals and other medical facilities in Ukraine with medicine, medical supplies, and equipment for emergencies or births. Its medical teams also provide immediate assistance in combat zones. More information at www.magna.org.
