Artists

Keri-Lynn Wilson Conductor

Keri-Lynn Wilson is the founder and music director of the highly regarded Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra — formed in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine — which over the past two summers has toured major cities and festivals in Europe and the United States. As a staunch supporter of Ukrainian liberty, Wilson also performed the Verdi Requiem at the Lviv Opera House to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the invasion. She has returned to that country to conduct Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with a new version of the Ode to Joy in Ukrainian that she created in which Schiller’s Freude (Joy) is changed to Slava (Glory), the rallying cry for Ukrainian victory.
